    Do you think that the original Nine Inch Nails song is better then the Linkin Park cover?

    I like the NIN version better over all but, I also like the screaming part Chester does during the verses.

    I've got reasons to say either version, I can't really decide...I like how the guitars in LP's version are much, MUCH heavier sounding, and I like how Joe puts his own spin on some of the sampled effects. However, I like Trent's vocals on the original version a lot better too.

    In a perfect world (in my opinion), Trent would sing with LP's version as the instrumental. :lol:

    There are some tidbits of LP's version that are good... sometimes the guitar...

    but NIN has the CRAZY drum parts that Rob just can't play.

    I also like the LP's version much more. Though I heard the original version only once, but I didn't like it from the beginning....

    I don't think NIN>LP in this case.

    I mean, I love NIN and LP both, but wow, Chester does amazing in that song, and I'm a huge fan of the original Wish. I think that here I'd have to say that I can't really tell which one is better.

    I think they sound different, and would depend on my mood. NIN is a little softer, I think. Aggressive and soft at the same time, while LP is all screaming and hard.

    I'm not so sure LP is 'harder' in this case... especially having seen NIN live (once upon a time ago), NIN hits especially hard on Wish. It's the NIN anthem.

    LP seems very... um... happy compared to NIN. Especially on that famous riff, LP has a happier tone than NIN.

    Screaming doesn't necessarily mean hard-hitting... look at all the screamo bands.

    That and I have to take points off for Chester trying to sound gravelly in different versions of Wish (such as on the LPU CD).

    I'm comparing the studio version of Wish to the LPU Live version of Wish, though, and I really think LP does it alot harder in it. And isn't the riff you're talking about the exact same riff NIN uses? Joe was using it as the sample, so it was probably just the same one.

    Well then, listen to the LIVE version of Wish by NIN and the live version of Wish by LP.

    You can't compare a studio track to a live track.

    EDIT: Go look up Nine Inch Nails Wish on youtube. There are plenty of live vids of it there.

    I have it on their album "And All That Could Have Been". Still think the screaming is better in the LP version, but maybe that's because I'm just a big fan of Chesters screaming.

    well, i can easily say that "wish" is clearly one of LP's best songs in a live set. but perhaps i say that because i've never heard the studio version.

    The original version recorded by Nine Inch Nails is way better than Linkin Park's cover. It absolutely irritates me how Chester includes screaming in absolutely everything. It bothers the shit out of me. It's a good cover, but the original ousts it. The original version is an obvious winner. I do not see how you can judge the cover as better. Cover's are usually not good (the only good covers I've heard is Johnny Cash's 'Ring of Fire' and The Atari's 'Boys of Summer).

    Frankly, it would have been worse if Chester sang it in the same way as it was on the original.

    I pretty much agree with Tasta myself.

    Haha, I love Chesters screaming. And yes, covers aren't usually as good as the originals. Johnny Cash's Hurt was good, but not as good as the original Hurt.

    This one is really close for me.
