So... launched from the Flyarse thread covering Nirvana, which other bands/artists should never be covered? It's not uncommon for someone to cover a Beatles record and it be bitchin'. Guns 'n' Roses version of Wings "Live and Let Die" was fucking awesome on toast with a side of beans. Here is my list of bands NOBODY should be allowed to cover. Unless it's an Adam Sandler style Wedding Band, because they all rock and keep it real. The Clash - I don't recall anyone even trying, if they did, it likely sucked balls. Jimi Hendrix - Red Hot Chilli Peppers, prepare for your one way trip to the sun. Nirvana - ...do I really need to start? the Spice Girls - ... the Ramones - Have some fucking respect, you jerkwads. the Smiths - Every cover of "How Soon is Now?" sends Morrissey one step closer to his grave.
