  • The only thing a cover "needs" in order to have a point is the artist enjoying playing it.
    I am with you.  I fail to understand these types of threads. 
    Maybe you should try reading the first post in them then.

    I did.  Perhaps try not to be so sensitive.  I was nice about it.

    There are two pointless covers I can't stand:

    Disturbed: Sound of Silence

    Bad Wolves: Zombie
    That songs drives me crazy! Every time it comes on the radio my whole family knows I hate it.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    Coming in only to say the thread is pointless is not nice. Now give me a hug.

    Pearl Jam should have do their cover more like this :O Man this is g-g--g-gg-g-g-g-g-g-g-g--great.

    That was extremely enjoyable - thanks for posting. Not a pointless one.

    I'm a fan of covers; it shows the love and respect a band has for another. Normally the cover is not as good as the original, but they are fun to hear.

    Here's a band that I recently started listening to doing a 4 way cover. May be pointless to some but I enjoy it - aside from liking their own original music. 

    Twiddle covering - Glycerin (Bush)/No Woman No Cry (Marley)/ Wagon Wheel (Old Crow Medicine Show)/Farmhouse(Phish) - all mashed up together - enjoy,....

    I think the first time at the Vic is the best one out of the three times theY have covered it. Wish theY would trY it with Eddie singing. But I ¨dothink it fits the thread.

    I'm assuming that it was more interesting to shit on Kiss than to even recognize the band I posted. Not unexpected.

    Huh?  I didn’t like the song plain and simple. I could care less if it was a kiss song. It was a pretty crappy cover.

    Sometimes posting can be as pointless as the cover songs. Sorry for the crap, whatever it was.

    I like a lot of covers, especially if it’s a band/singer that I’m already a fan of covering a song I don’t know. It’s a good way to get introduced to new music.

    As for “pointless covers” - every time there’s a tv ‘talent’ show (The Voice, Idol, anything with Simon Cowell involved) they always rattle out the same old covers. Do we need any more tv winners doing Sinatra/easy listening covers that have been done a thousand times already? I worked in a music store for years and that shit used to sell by the truckload. It used to annoy the hell out of me to have to reorder stock.
