Amazing Cover Songs

Amazing Cover Songs: Black by Staind

I’m not afraid to admit I’m more than a bit biased in picking this awesome cover song. But hey, who out there can honestly say their music opinions don’t have a great level of bias. To be completely honest, I’ve never been a huge Pearl Jam fan. To go even further with my honesty, is one of my favorite…

Amazing Cover Songs: My Way by Sid Vicious

Now here’s a sad music story for the history books. If I’m to be honest, this song is not the best. However, if Sid Vicious gets any credit at all it’s for effort.

Amazing Cover Songs: Last Caress/Green hell by Metallica

“I got something to sa-ay. I killed your baby today”  From the $5.98 EP, Metallica outdid themselves with this cover song from the legendary Misfits punk band. As the heavy music genre lines became blurry in the 80s, die hard thrash metal fans joined hard core punk fans in mosh pits when Metallica released their short but extremely popular…
