Incredibly excited, just with Corey Taylor didn't have anything to do with this
^hah, completely agree about Corey Taylor.. hate that guy
this should be... interesting. will probably be a mixed bag. Tenacious D cut will rock for sure
Ugh, I can't stand Killswitch Engage's cover of Holy Diver.
Digging: The Phonies - Your Body Lost Along the Shore
That fuck is going to ruin Rainbow in the Dark.
Digging: Purity Ring - Another Eternity
the money is going to a good cause at least.. could be worse
"“Holy Diver” – Killswitch Engage"
Confirmed for ruined song
" “Ronnie Rising Medley (featuring “A Light in the Black”, “Tarot Woman”, “Stargazer”, “Kill the King”)”– Metallica"
I played the fuck out of KSE's Holy Diver in 06/07, you guys are just being tools because it's a pretty fun cover.
yeah i really like KSE's cover. the video is fun too
but seriously what is it with Metallica and medleys? just play an entire damn song
Was excited to see who got Holy Diver but it's that fucking Killswitch cover again ugh.
Digging: Jeff Rosenstock - We Cool?
yep, shoulda had somebody new cover it.
would've loved to see Heaven and Hell get a cover, but oh well
Pumped as fuck for Motorhead doing Starstruck.
any chance that holy diver cover is re-recorded bc of vocalist
Digging: Marina and The Diamonds - Froot
not that i mind the cover (why are u guys shitting on it we all agreed like 3 years ago that it was pree cool)
pree cool is disappointing if you consider the fact that the original is a legendary heavy metal song
"any chance that holy diver cover is re-recorded bc of vocalist"
Right? At least change it up a little bit.
Um actually Corey Taylor is in this...
My moms bf plays drums on the doro track m/
Digging: Ashdautas - Where the Sun is Silent...
Leave it to Metallica to hog 4 of Rainbow's best songs. Sadly missing Gates of Babylon and Heaven and Hell. Should be interesting anyways.
Digging: Daniel Amos - Darn Floor - Big Bite
Hey that Killswitch cover is badass. Just because they play metalcore doesnt mean they didnt do the song justice.
Tenacious D cut will rock for sure 
that and the Anthrax track
"yep, shoulda had somebody new cover it."
Eagles of Death Metal
the king is gone but not forgotten
I'm looking forward to Corey's cover, he's got a damn good voice
Digging: Separatist - Closure
Yeah Corey isn't bad by any means but just out of principle I don't think he should partake in this.
What principle? That he was a singer for a very popular metal band?
KSE's "Holy Diver" is terrible and Corey Taylor is bound to ruin "Rainbow In The Dark"
Digging: Drudkh - Microcosmos
Jesus Christ. James Hetfield singing Stargazer is something I never want to hear.
Instrumentally speaking, Metallica might be interesting, but James voice... and even though I don't like Motorhead, I think Starstruck will be perfect for them, as well as The Temple of the King for Scorpions
Digging: Blue Oyster Cult - Imaginos
"James Hetfield singing Stargazer is something I never want to hear."
Few singers could do Stargazer like Dio...Roy Khan and Nils Patrik Johansson (Astral Doors) are the only ones that come to mind.
duurrrrr no band/person is worthy of covering X song
get the fuck over it
I hope none of you sing along to Dio
Digging: A Night In Texas - The God Delusion
Surprised no one is excited to see what Glenn Hughes does, also no heaven and hell from coheed?
Digging: William Control - The Neuromancer
Hughes would've been great for a heavy Rainbow track, don't know if a ballad will suit him
one of the worst album artworks I have ever seen
Tribute albums with good artwork do exist?
where's Tony Iommi and Ozzy
out of principle
Digging: Say Lou Lou - Lucid Dreaming
I like Corey Taylor just fine. The bands he's in...different story.
Digging: Buckethead - Project Little Man
And Satchel is on this...well that's awesome.
Tenacious D are going to rock... Also, Scorpions got a song that really maches their style...
Digging: Steven Wilson - Hand. Cannot. Erase.
Oh yeah The D make me cream my jeans.
as expected, Cory Taylor's track sucks.
