I dug the Sirens verse here a lot more than in the actual song on Taboo where he tried to use it as some definitive “The Blacker the Berry” type statement.

I wasn't sure if this was going to be any good but this is easily the best RATM cover I've ever heard and one of the best covers I've ever heard outright.

Denzel could easily put out a 5/5 in RATM style and I think he's already getting close to it

It's kind of comparing apples to oranges though? Like yeah Cornell is a better singer, cause... he's a singer. People don't like Zach because he has a pretty voice, they like him because he's a good lyricist and performer.

i personally think the verse he added honestly flowed pretty well, and even if the lyrics he was interpolating from “SIRENS” kinda trailed off flow-wise, yall gotta admit the lyrics make the song feel more modern in tone. idk i think denzel hit it out of the park with this perfomance, plus the “BLACK BALLOONS” performance with Sampa The Great was also nearly just as incredible

@art sounds like typical hardcore punk vibes to me, which is where zack’s background is pre-RATM so again, I’d say that you’re just expecting the wrong thing going in

to the people who don’t like his added verse to this, may i ask why??? bc i don’t feel like it’s out of place at all, so i don’t understand why people aren’t diggin it. besides its lyrics, which ig i could understand, but otherwise i think this performance/cover is damn near perfect tbh
