AdrienVeidt: Queen is a band of extremely talented individuals that can't come together to make a good song. Bohemian Rhapsody isn't the worst song in the universe, but it's a medley of random songs chopped up in a blender, with no artistic merit. Their work on Flash Gordon and Highlander was stale and dated immediately upon release, and do nothing to improve the movies. It's ugly to say it, but their reputation was saved by Freddie's death since we don't get to see them descend into Elton John-levels of schmaltz.
FirstNationalBastard: /but, yeah, the cover sucked. It was like this wimpy, defeated sounding doormat whining, while Joplin's version was a drunken broad screaming at you, daring you.
lasercannon: [www.abbaomnibus.net image 450x327]Hey guys, what's going on?
Smelly McUgly: I always have hated Queen with a passion, but then I heard "Radio Gaga" because of GTA V. Now I'm re-thinking my position on them and wondering if I should give them another, more extensive listen./But not "Bohemian Rhapsody." NEVER AGAIN.
notyomama: simplicimus: Who did that horrible cover of "Behind Blue Eyes"? I'm thinking Lincoln Park or Limp Bizkut, bit I'm probably wrong. Oh, and from a decade ago, whatever country singer covered "Piece of my Heart".I have never heard any other covers of anything that make me angrier than those two. I already hated Limp Bizkit but that cover enraged me. The country singer was Faith Hill and I have hated her ever since. How dare she bastardize Janis' song.
H31N0US: Two words about Queen: Live Aid.They came out of retirement for all intents and purposes, and blew the field away. It was their best show. Go YouTube it. Ah fark it here it is. I'll watch it now why not.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQsM6u0a038
Pokey.Clyde: Sheryl Crow's cover of "Sweet Child O' Mine"Sweet Child O' Mine was also used as the background music recently for a Johnson & Johnson commercial. (I think it was played on something like a xylophone)
OgreMagi: FirstNationalBastard: /but, yeah, the cover sucked. It was like this wimpy, defeated sounding doormat whining, while Joplin's version was a drunken broad screaming at you, daring you.Joplin drunk is ten times better than than talentless skanks trying to pass themselves off as singers with autotune turned up to eleven./I may be underestimating how much better she is
The Bestest: SuperTramp: 'Blurred Lines' bastardization of Marvin Gaye's 'Got To Give It Up'This, 1000%. Robin Thicke, you should be ashamed of yourself.Sing it, Marvin, honey.Then I definitely shouldn't be a judge on the lawsuit, because while there are similarities, there's no way the Gaye estate has a case to my ear.
