I really don’t understand why this keeps happening. There seems to be a trend nowadays of taking a classic song and then a very unoriginal/uninspiring takes said song and absolutely ruins it. Recently, Avenged Sevenfold released a cover of the classic and very profound “Wish You Were Here” by Pink Floyd. I don’t even need to say anymore but, I have to say that this is probably one of the worst covers I’ve ever heard. Their version reminded be that Fred Durst from Limp Bizkit and Johnny Reznick from the Goo Goo Dolls did a really bad version of this song too.
So which one is worse?
Avenged Sevenfold- Wish You Were Here:
Fred Durst, Johnny Reznick, and Wes Borland- Wish You Were Here:
Here’s a good cover version… At least Scott Weiland can sing it properly.
Velvet Revolver- Wish You Were Here:
Pink Floyd- Wish You Were Here:
