I'm sorry; I meant, "Drop dead, *comrade*."

With the exception, in my opinion, of  We've Got A Fuzzbox And We're Going To Use It, Frank Sidebottom  and Bad New's covers of Bohemian Rhapsody - an overblown, overrated track improved with an injection of humour.

And NIN cover of "Get Down, Make Love"!

I like the Scissor Sisters as a rule, but I hate their cover...

I also hate Limp Biskit's "Behind Blue Eyes"! Was the middle part too tough for them to do... ahhh... bless!

And Phil Collins cover of "True Colors"... pure and utter shite!

Then hie thee to a branch of Fopp and buy the album. I think they've got it for a fiver at the moment. Seriously, you're only half a human if you've only heard that bloody awful cover and not the sublime original.

Like a dog with a bone, me.

Oohh.. I don't know. You know how it is when you hear a song you like, then hear another version of it. ... Doesn't really matter which came first if the one you know is so good!

Besides, I don't like Kate bush. Obviously I've not really heard any kate bush apart from the 2 or 3 singles I know (& thought they were a bit cack), So I'll not judge the lady on those songs alone. - Singles aside, the rest of her albums are probably fantastic!

I particularly hate Korn's cover of Another Brick in the Wall, it just doesn't work, they shout the lyrics rather than sing with the contempt that Roger Waters did

I know that Lemar did 'I Believe In A Thing Called Love'-Shit song by a Shit band anyway, so it really was a bad idea from the start. Don't know if anyone has done Coldplay covers, I hope not cos I quite like them and can't wait for their new album and glasto.

Eamon did one in the Live Lounge, I believe. The Scientist, I think it was.

Eamon doing a Coldplay cover. This means I lost interest real quick.

Well, when a song you love gets covered and ruined, it does produce a reaction similar to being forced to watch Glitter
