Amazing Cover Songs

Amazing Cover Songs: Your Mama Don’t Dance by Poison

Let me start off by boldly and fearlessly stating that I’m not a poison fan by any stretch of the imagination. However, I have no problem admitting that Brett Michaels has an amazing voice.

I’m tickled at their version of this class I rock oldie. I even like it better than the original version. Let me give credit where credit…

Amazing Cover Songs: Drift Away by Uncle Cracker

I’m a big fan of this remake. Of course that may very well be because it’s technically a duet with the original singer Doby Gray. Actually my reasoning is that I’ve always had a special place in my heart for this song. It might be the memories of riding on a Harley on a warm summer night. It might be…

Amazing Cover Songs: Crimson and Clover by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts

I think Joan Jett is the queen of amazing cover songs. Most don’t realize that “I love rock n roll” is also a cover song. Originally by Tommy James and the Shondells, Joan’s version is better! Everything Joan does is better! Joan has, as far as I know, never stated her sexual orientation. Probably because she prefers to think of…

Amazing Cover Songs: “Just What I Needed/Candio” by INC

I remember the first time I heard INC, A.K.A. Indestructible Noise Command. I was still in high school, when thrash metal was first getting big. Yeah, we all told ourselves we were pretty cool back then. Well, most of my old friends from back then still think they’re pretty cool. Some are.

Anyway it was playing from a pathetic…

Amazing Cover Songs: Bobby McGee by Melissa Etheridge

Janis Joplin was a brilliant artist with a heartbreaking life. Even though she died at the very young age of 27, she made a huge impact on female musicians and rock n roll. As the very first female rock star, not many women have the presence to handle one of her songs or the moxie to make an attempt. Unless…you…

Amazing Cover Songs: Landslide by The Dixie Chicks

If you ask me, the Dixie chicks have gotten a bad rap more than once. After being flamed for their openly political opinion for George Bush and his poor choices……let’s just say it….they were right on the money! America can burn their CDs in protest but not so much as a simple apology when they turn out to be on…

Amazing Cover Songs: Shout by Disturbed

The different sub-genres of heavy metal get confusing for every one, including me. Industrial metal? Progressive metal? I forget which box Disturbed fits into. Frankly, following the hundreds of different rock genres is exhausting .

I loved this band the first time I heard “Down with the sickness” well over a decade ago. A driving beat pounding to lyrics…
