I think they do it justice. Not an easy feat.

 

 

I always liked this cover they did

Yep, agree on both counts.
The way covers should be done.
Updated, slightly different and personalised.
Either that or completely different.
In saying that, I heard a cover of "Only You" tonight at the end of Designated Survivor. Better than the original.
I'll see if I can find it.

Agreed! Also depends on the artist. Not a big fan of completely different genres doing a cover. Like electronic song being done without the electronic sound. But again depends on the band

I loved that song and movie as a kid. They did such a great job with that cover

It's a great song, I didn't know it was a cover when I first heard it.

Here's a link, in case somebody missed it:

Saw them do this live a couple years ago. Trent did this song justice. Ian Curtis and Brandon :ee would both be proud

I'm not 100% sure who these guys are. I think they may be a Slade cover band. ;)

 

 

Yes, that's right...........i'm a shit stirrer.

Don't pigeon hole them, man.
They covered more than just Slade...

Actually their versions of the Slade songs are killer.
Perfect band to cover as the sound had progressed so much since the originals and the QR versions were, as Paul Stanley would say, more bombastic.

A couple from Aussie legend John Farnham. You know the first one. The second is a cover of a "Cold Chisel" song.

This one made me laugh even though I can't understand most of what of what he's saying. I guess it's not strictly speaking a cover but it's cleverly done. The guy is a popular politician in Greece

Here's the original. A great tune.

 

All you need to know about the cover is that "Alan" refers to Alan Bond, an Australian entrepreneur from the 80's who played a big part in the Aussies beating the U.S.A. in the Americas Cup yacht race (which was a very big deal down here). He was one of the richest men in Australia at the time.

The original is a hard act to follow. Too hard. I don't think they quite got there.

Nope.
Sad they couldn't stick to Race.
That was their future.
Their golden moment.
Their glory days.

It never ceases to amaze me how you can learn something new everyday when it comes to our music. This has always been one of my favourite "Gotthard" tracks and i only discovered today that it was a cover. I know they have many great covers in their back catalog, but I didn't realize this was one of them.

A great cover. I'm sure Doggy, Geoff and CureTheSane will recognize this one.

    • What the hell?
      Wonder which band member convinced his daughter to dance in the clip?
      Kinda creepy video.
      Weird choice for a bunch of 50 year olds...
    • In theory it is D2. It is the Revolve line up with the vocalists swapped. Makes you kinda think that the only reason that was the last D2 album and no follow up is due to Poley. I remember Ravel saying there would be no more D2 as the recording process of Revolve was such hard work, and seeing as all three other members are recording together here, it kinda starts to look like the issue is with the vocalist.
    • From sleazeroxx.com: Playhouse to release new album ‘The Rock N’ Roll Circus’ on November 10th Canadian hard rockers, Playhouse, will be releasing their first new album in more than 25 years with the release of The Rock N’ Roll Circus on November 10, 2018. The group will be having a CD launch party at the Piranha Bar in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on November 10, 2018. Playhouse‘s “Story” on their Facebook page states (with slight edits): “Formed during the height of the 80’s hard rock invasion, five high school friends wanted to play loud! The year was 1987 and they had one goal, to be the biggest rock band to ever come out of Canada. Playhouse released two E.P..’s; 1989’s Little Monster and the follow up; Tongue, Tied & Twisted in 1990. With a reputation for high energy shows and big chorus anthems. they quickly started filling every club they played. Now armed with a dedicated fan base solidly behind them, local promoters came calling. Soon, Playhouse found themselves opening for the likes of Extreme, Killer Dwarfs,Brighton Rock, Harem Scarem and many more. Then after 8 years together in the Rock n Roll Circus, the band called it quits…and now, almost 25 years later, THEY ARE BACK! In the fall of 2016, the band reunited and entered the studio for the first time together in over 20 years with veteran recording producer and lead guitarist for Slaves on Dope, Kevin Jardine to record three new songs. The first video “On Fire” was released in September 2016 with a follow up video released a few months later for “Stand Up And Fight.” In November 2017, Playhouse returned to the stage after 25 year with their sold out comeback show in Montreal, Canada.   Check out this earlier thread on these guys: https://heavyharmonies.ipbhost.com/topic/35094-playhouse/        
    • no......it.......doesn't 
    • Drinking my Beaujolais nouveau (Vive La France for your beautiful traditions!!!!!) while spinning them back to back on vinyl (Jaysus, sound is incredible on both vinyls!!!!) and still GOC wipes the floor with Tunguska(what a waste of a great title, btw!). 
    • wow. I'll leave that comment there. in terms of this album - it's a boring one paced generic album. Martennson needs to regather himself for the Eclipse album next year and produce something truly exciting
