Even though, the music stays the same, with Nina Hagen's voice (using completely different lyrics sung in German) it almost sounds like a different song.
I'd beg everybody to check it out, just one time.
This version gave a classic song a new life. Took a '60's folk-song into punk of the early '80's and treated it with respect.
I love most of their covers (Am I Evil, Stone Cold Crazy, Turn the Page, Helpless, etc.), but this, combined with other Misfits-Song 'Green Hell', is by far the best. Also like their Misfits-Cover of 'Die Die, My Darling' too.
Ambitious to take on any Pink Floyd-Song, in my eyes, but to even improve it, is an achievement. Hats off!
Many of their covers of Heavy Metal-Classics (Paranoid, The Trooper, Blackened, etc) are pretty amazing.
By far the most original cover of all the hundreds of versions.
Totally stripped down version of one of the ultimate pop-classics, giving it almost a new perspective.
