|My Top 10 Favorite Covers|
My top 10 favorite cover songs in order. I only picked songs if I had heard the original version as well.
|1||The Devil Wears Prada|
Big Tymers cover. Off of "Punk Goes Crunk". I just love the emphasis on the chorus with the clean vocs and the screamed out verses. The clean vocals are so epic. I heard this song the day Punk Goes Crunk came out and I still love it. It stays true to the original yet sounds so different.
|2||Bring Me The Horizon|
Slipknot cover. Off of "Kerrang Higher Voltage". This is actually my favorite BMTH song. I just think they took the Slipknot version and pumped everything up, it really makes Slipknot's version look like it was made by small children.
Kelis cover. Off of the single "Our Song". Basically, Goodnight Nurse took a shit song and made it awesome haha. For a little pop punk band they make this song pretty bad ass, it's probably their heaviest song.
|4||The Agony Scene|
Paint It, Black
The Rolling Stones cover. Off of "The Agony Scene". I have heard many covers of this song (God and Helloween have notable covers), but this one is my favorite. What I like about this version is how they don't abuse the signature "Paint It, Black guitar lick" like so many other covers. The screaming also fits the song surprisingly well. The song has epic build up.
|5||A Day to Remember|
Since U Been Gone
Kelly Clarkson cover. Off of "For Those Who Have a Heart (Re-issue)". Another case of taking a song and totally pumping it up. They take a pop song and make it enjoyable for fans of rock and heavier music. There is only a little bit of screaming but the screaming that is there just makes the song that much heavier.
All About Us
t.A.T.u. cover. Off of "Only Inhuman". Ok, I'm not gonna lie, I heard this version before the original and after I heard this version I couldn't handle listening to the original. This version has so much more to it then the original and is much heavier yet still manages to stay catchy.
Dio cover. Off of "Kerrang High Voltage". Wow, this is the song that introduced me and essentially got me into KsE. I don't want to offend any old school metal fans but all I can say is that this cover makes the original sound so mellow and bland. Howards Jones totally pulled off the vocs in this one.
|8||I Set My Friends On Fire|
Crank Dat (Cavalry Boy)
Soulja Boy cover. Off of www.isetmyfriendsonfire.com. Well lets put it this way, what can be worse than Souja Boy? ISMFOF is a 2 piece, what would you call it, rap-metalcore band? Haha I dunno, they made this song pretty intense and the breakdown at the end is heavy as hell.
Michael Jackson cover. Off of "Flies & Lies". Took this classic Jackson son and turned it into a metal classic. Stayed true to the original but made it more accessible to fans of other genres of music.
Got Your Money
Ol' Dirty Bastard cover. Off of "Punk Goes Crunk". This is freaking hilarious. The original is a already a funny song, but you feed this stuff to Max Bemis and you have a instant classic. It almost comes across as a parody but that's just how Max is.
|My friends are addicted to 1 unfortunately, vocals suck but it's pretty fun. I need to hear 5 and 7 and 9 rules, 6 is alright.|
|Such an awesome list.|
|4 and 9 are great. i havent heard 3,5,8,10 but the other ones suck big time|
|My favorite part of #1 is the random clean vocals in the third verse: "With the DIAMOND IN THE BACK!"|
It's a strange cover, but then again, that's a really strange c.d. I will say that that was the only song from the c.d. I paid attention to, but when all is said and done, I still like the original better.

A lot of people dislike TDWP's vocals, but I like em. I find the clean vocs quite epic, but I guess I see how people can find them annoying. I think the screams are just brutal and sweet.

Haha, if you don't like the others you probably won't like the ones you haven't heard. How can KsE's Holy Diver suck... :( I thought they did a brilliant job.

Haha yeah that part is sweet. I'll admit that All Time Low's cover of Umbrella off of Punk Goes Crunk was close to making it on this list.
|Jrowa's a notorious KSE hater, unfortunately but true. I personally love the cover although Dio > all.|
|I picked up change to 5. I mean, everyone was doing it.|
|#4 is pretty sick, #7 was pretty good too|
|I LOVE #1, and I love his clean vocals too, find the chorus epic as hell and it'd be crap without the clean vocals. |
|FyreNail: That was the same with me when I first heard the song. The screaming really grew on me and that song actually got me into that band and along with KsE got me into metalcore.|
|NFG's cover of "Iris" should be on this. That song is awesome. |
|I've never heard that cover, gonna have to check it out :)|
|check out the one of "kiss me" by NFG too|
