i really don't mind the first two of those covers.
the SP covers I hate are the ones that try too hard to sound like the original. like that third one. :puke:

I don't really like female singers in music. It feels like they're using a cheat code to sound sexy/emotional and that kind of bothers me. If there was a guy singing, I wouldn't care, but with a girl, it sounds really powerful/hot and it almost feels unfair.

that's incredible. it sounds like a totally different genre, and still really good.

just awful.

singer sounds like he's gagging, drums have none of that JC 'flow'. they should just stop.

Almost all of them are the worst

I haven't been able to find a good electric Mayonaise cover.

James Iha's "cover" of Mayonaise from like 2012 is probably the worst Mayo cover I have heard

Watch "Tales of a Scorched Earth (cover) performed by Analogue" on YouTube

Horrible... only corgan can pull off being raw like that. I think if youre gonna cover an already messy song like that would be to kinda clean it up a little

sounds good to me. dude is obviously using lyrics through a bad translation or something... obviously doesn't speak english. but props for trying, SP never ever tried to do that song
