Cover tunes are such a mixed bag. While some can actually improve on the original there are others that can painfully bastardize the harmony of the song's first incarnation. With music constantly being sampled, i.e. ripped off, it's no surprise that kids would rather listen to a modern update of a classic.
What's fun about cover tunes is the debates they inspire amongst music buffs who may fancy themselves connoisseurs, but in reality don't listen to anything produced before 1986. Many bands have made quite a name for themselves copying silly songs such as early Van Halen and one hit wonder country groups, but there are some quality bands that can belt out a previous hit with good results.
Today I bring you a band which is a favorite of my best friend covering Slade's 'Come on Feel the Noise'. Yes I know this has been covered before by the infamous buttrock band Quiet Riot.
You are correct that I'm posting this partially to annoy Mattbear.
