Awful Cover Songs: Cats in the Cradle by Ugly Kid Joe
I’m gonna step outside my normal personality and give an unbiased review…no, I can’t do it. Most music lovers can’t. Forget unbiased, I can’t even be gentle! I had a distaste for ugly kid Joe when they released their first single “Everything About You” and this awful remake did nothing to win me over either.
When should you expect a review that isn’t just full of love or contempt? Well, this section is Awful Cover Songs and as open I am to all forma of music, it’s hard to make this section…unless I really believe it’s awful!
I’m a visual artist and don’t have any real music training. (aside from the karaoke competition here and there- some I actually won) I’m not making any claims to be a music expert. I make no claims to be anything other than a lifetime Rock N Roll fan who has a strong opinion about every thing I hear. Sorry to give Ugly Kid Joe such a bad rap. The truth is I enjoy the raspy-ness of the vocals and snarky-ness of the lyrics. But I hear no real value in the band as a collective, am insulted by their frequent inclusion in the Heavy Metal genre and believe they entitled “Ugly as The Want to be” and “America’s least Wanted” appropriately. Hey, I’m not giving actual reviews….only sharing my strong opinions. Disagree? Let me know: @pamrenovato
The original song is an iconic piece of Rock N Roll history….and Ugly Kid Joe are a train wreck!
