    Civil Twilight does a pretty sick cover of Massive Attack's Teardrop.

    This is one of the most ignorant statements I've ever seen on this site, and I've been here for ten years.

    What in the hell is the point of a cover if it's going to sound exactly like the original song? Why would anyone bother listening to a cover of a song if it sounds exactly like the original song? There'd be no point. Therefore, your statement about them "tarnishing" the song it's "meaning and tone" are so far off-base that I'm not even sure you're in the stadium anymore.

    Also, for the record, Mr. Makes-Ignorant-Statements-Linking-Metal-and-Satanic-Cult-Worship-as-a-Blanket-Statement, August Burns Red are a deeply devout Christian band. The fuck would make you think it's Satanic? Because it's fucking metal? Ignorant.

    Saw this in related videos. It's a half-cover due to Jerry Cantrell's presence in it, but Corey Taylor nails Layne's parts.

    Is it just me, or does Corey Taylor look like Mutoh from Ocarina of Time?

    Read the whole thread to make sure I didn't repost one.

    RED and August Burns Red are two of my favorite bands so both of those covers I agree are awesome.

    I like this Four Year Strong cover:

    This is one of my favorite songs and Corey nails it it sounds like. I wish there was a good quality version of this to really get the full effect.
