I just saw a commercial with Macy Gray singing "Walk This Way". Several things piss me off about this. One being I hate Macy Gray at all times, so this was not a pleasant experience. However, the thing that really irked me was the fact she was singing "Walk This Way". Who decided that its alright for people with little or questionable talent to remake songs by awesome bands. "Walk This Way" is a classic. Aerosmith and Run DMC contributed greatly to the acceptance of hip-hop in the mainstream. This song wasn't just good, it was groundbreaking. Now crappy people like Macy Gray are ruining it.
Other Bad Covers:
- Madonna "American Pie" - I hate this song to begin with. But this was uncalled for
- Britney Spears "I Love Rock and Roll" - When asked about the song Spears said "I just love the song. I love Pat Benatar, and I just think she's amazing." It was Joan Jett you stupid bimbo.
- Limp Bizkit "Behind Blue Eyes" - This was sacreligous. I thought Fred Durst should be hung up by his balls BEFORE this.
And the WORST cover ever:
Those Chicks from 10 Things I Hate About You "I Want You to Want Me" - Words cannot descibe my... my...well I said words couldn't describe it. It's way more than anger. Anyone want to help me on this on?
Closing Shot: Aerosmith, Run DMC, Don McLean, Pat Benetar, The Who, and Cheap Trick, where are you? America needs you.
