Has anyone heard this cover of 'Another Brick in the Wall' by Korn? I don't know about anyone else, but as a long time fan of Pink Floyd I think it's an insult to all music.

Well, I'll reserve final judgement until I hear the song, but the thought alone does perturb me quite a bit.
... and that's all I have to say about that.

I can't wait for Korn's Pantera tribute.

It can't be much worse than the castrated version of 'Comfortably Numb', and I survived that, though with heavy brain damage and gender confusion. In fact, I don't think I want to hear it, not even just to judge it.

There were a lot of songs I didn't realize were covers of older stuff when I was growing up, so I can only fear that some younger people will now grow up thinking this is the real version of the song. So much for the future of music. :confused:

To their credit though, Korn actually did a decent job covering the song, but that's not the issue.

Almost every famous song has at least once been the subject of a real bad cover,
yet that doesn't affect the original song all that much.

I heard some punk-highschool-rock-version of "Imagine" not long ago.
People often know what's worth listening to.
I heard it once on the radio, and it has never been played since.

I think this version is friggin awesome! it kind of retains the floydian sound, but makes it a lot heavier. it's not bad, just different, and i like it.

No, but I can imagine it must be pretty awful.

ew, i just heard korns version of another brick in the wall it was bad :(

i heard this cover of stairway to heaven, the guy had to play it a little slow and he was making a joke out of how he didnt know the song so it kind of sucked.

a perfect circle did a cover of john lennons imagine, its ok i guess. it makes the song a bit darker.

the sad thing is that i am 16 and when i hear cover songs on the radio i am usually the only one who knows who the original band is out of all of my friends. what is the world comming to :eek:

ps. i really really really like linkin park, i think they are amazing musicans

Yeah, I like Linkin Park too. It's very good 'muzak' for the gym and stuff like that. I just don't think they should be in the business of doing covers.
