Most Overrated Rock Cover Songschristangrant
The Top Ten
There are some things that you just DON'T COVER. - PositronWildhawk
One question. Why not just go for the original for Suicide Squad? - naFrovivuS
This is nowhere near the quality of the original - christangrant
Let's be real here, outside of really edgy teenagers and WonkeyDude98, who actually likes this? This isn't overrated. - ProPanda
That means I can take out the fanbase of Edgy teens for any band with them as a fanbase and then I can say "They aren't Overrated" - christangrant
Not a fan of this cover. This song is very introspective and by adding death growls they really ruined the idea of this masterpiece. Growls are supposed to scare. The problem is that the character of this song is scared and doesn't want to scare anyone. - Metal_Treasure
Also if you want to listen to a much better cover of Hallowed Be Thy Name go listen to the Machine Head One it's a 1000x better than this awful pile of crap - christangrant
Good lord this cover sucks and it's overrated! The music's decent but the vocals ruin it for me.
This is one of my least favorite covers of all time and yet its considered better than the orginal HA baloney this cover is trash and so is the band behind it who basically ruined one of the greatest songs ever made - christangrant
Horrible and this is the only reason songs off Results May Very were even played on the radio - christangrant
Unpopular opinion here but I thought this cover was (kind of) decent
i'll crawl into the nearest hole and stay there now - wrests
I never liked this song and the cover isn't much better although its overrated mainly because people think it was actually by the beatles - christangrant
It's mainly overrated due to the fact that LZ claimed that this song was their own when in reality it's a cover - christangrant
LZ claimed that this was their own song?
..Hm nothing new for Led Zeppelin - Ananya
While its not the worst cover ever its very overrated because its nowhere near the original song - christangrant
This ruins a great Metallica song - christangrant
It's a Ok cover but its not their best cover - christangrant
There are much better cover versions of this; Roger Waters, Eric Clapton, Grateful Dead, Cold Chisel and Warren Zevon actually kept the emotion in the song. - BrianScott01
This version is better than the Original at least I can stand Axl Rose can singing also he's "objectively" a better singer in terms of Vocal Range and destroys dylans range (he has around a 5 Octave range) - christangrant
The original one by Bob Dylan is way better than the Guns N' Roses cover.
Still an amazing rendition, but it misses the desperate emotion of Leonard Cohen's original, especially by ignoring the original version's final verse, and at points, over-singing.
