I was listening back to the Garage Inc Metallica album the other day on my way home from work. While listening it got me thinking about how many great covers Metallica did on that album. There are quite a few songs they covered that in my opinion are better than the original. For example their version of Bob Seger’s “Turn The Page,” as well as their version of Queen’s “Stone Cold Crazy” is quite possibly better than the original.

The A to Z list continues to find the top ten bands/artists in the alphabet. Q is upon us and needs help to complete the list. As usual your suggestions are wanted in completing this list. These are in no particular order as well.
02) Queens Of The Stone Age
05) Q-Tip (of A Tribe Called Quest)
I’ve never been a big fan of Queen. Freddie Mercury is great, but I’be always been annoyed by Brian May. I recently stumbled across this great version of “Bohemian Rhapsody” sung by the very underrated Jimmy Gnecco of Ours. Jimmy has one of the best voices in rock music and his band Ours has always been a very underrated and fantastic band.
