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
