Oh good, it's basically just the original song with added breakdowns and girls. This band in a nutshell really.

From what I've heard they're music is appalling. I just listened to a song of theirs on YouTube and well... The crunchy metalcore breakdowns + the faulty electronic music = a total case of explosive diarrhea.

Other than this song being atrocious, Asking Alexandria accomplished something. They didn't have a breakdown in the beginning of the song, and finally had one at 2 minutes. That's a musical achievement for these guys.

They didn't do anything interesting with this cover, which defeats the point of doing one in the first place. I mean, outside of partaking in an obvious cash grab.

Which is kind of the point of the band entirely, at this point.

Started off alright-ish, in my view it was just an unoriginal and crappy copy of it which stayed pretty true to the original. And then in came the beatdowns. Downhill from there.

danny's screams are now as bad on record as they are live. They sound so hollow. At least his lower register sounds good, cause his higher register is pretty much fucked now (raspy in a bad way).

I don't mind his higher screams. You heard his feature in Breathe Carolina's recent new single right? He hits some gnarly highs on that.

Sorry Snide, can't agree with you on this one... the whole point of Nine Inch Nails is their dark understated tone. This
started off promising but the breakdown just ruined it for me.

This is the worst kind of cover too. It wants to sound exactly like the original. This is just piss. It's not even good enough to be shit.

Oh god, then comes the added lyrics and "breakdown". This is hilarious.

Goddammit you're right... well I feel stupid now. But my main point still stands... this tries too hard to be just like the original and yet at the same time manages to miss the tone of the original completely. I honestly can't believe Trent approved this.
