the alternative cover

this post is about the verses.  well, actually the versus.  the arena is alternative covers.  the contenders are Alien Ant Farm – smooth criminal vs. Korn – word up.

back in the day i was not a fan of covers because folks cover a great song & try to make it  sound different when it was just fine the way it was.  covers are usually for new/unknown artists to show their talents.  but honestly, i am open to liking covers, i’ve grown. 🙂

in case you were wondering, they are both winners for me.  Alien Ant Farm did a fantastic job of matching Michael Jackson’s action packed style.  i also give them points for creativity.

Korn chose a unique song to cover.  i imagined Jonathan Davis’ favorite Uncle used to play Cameo records and jam the shiz out of them.  Korn gets points for song selection & musicianship.  who do you pick? #ihtrBlog
