View Full Version : Just when you thought Korn's "Word Up" was the worst remake ever...

So i'm at Circuit City the other day looking at the cds/dvds, and all of the sudden I started to feel sick to my stomach. I wasn't sure why, but then it all became clear. There was some music coming out of the stereo section, and while I normally drown this stuff out of my head, I realized I was listening to a techno/pop version of Alice Cooper's "Poison". Yes, some monotone chicks were actually singing this song over a heavy dance beat as if they wrote it. I don't know who was doing this song, nor can I be arsed with trying to figure it out at this point, but things like this just have to stop. If any one knows who is defacing this song, please let me know, so I can write my local congressman. This is the way the world ends...not with a bang, but a whimper...

On a more positive note,

I plan to see Alice himself right here in my home town of Joliet on the 12th of October! :D

See I didn't even really care THAT much for Cooper's verion of that song when it FIRST came out in 1989, it had too much cheese metal appeal. I didn't start to like the song until I heard him play it on his Brutal Live tour in 2000. The slow the intro waaaaaaay down, add alot of re-verb, and it has a really good creepy cool vibe too it, which is what I have come to love about his music.

When I was in a CD shop in Athens Airport, they interupted Deep Purples Child in Time for a techno-reggae version of Light my Fire...


I had to leave so I wouldn't smash up the store.

You should try out local supermarket where they have Elavator Music style vocal-less covers of loads of classic and new stuff.
It puts you in a sort of daze where you wander round in a detached state and chuck products in your trolley. then suddenly you realise the mellow tune goinf round in your head is "Smells like Teen Spirit" or "Walk this Way". Wierd place.

Outside of elavator music, I tend to like covers that try and do songs in different genres, rather than sound identical to the original. Joss Stone's cover of Fell in love with a boy, Scissor Sister's cover of Comfortably Numb, and if i remember rightly The Cardigans did some wierd covers of Black Sabbath songs on almost every album of theirs...

Yoh pretty ladies around the world
Got a wierd thing to show you
So tell all the boys and girls
Tell your brother, your sister and your mamma too
We're about to go down
And you know just what to do
Wave your hands in the air like you don't care
Glide past the people as they stop to look and stare
Do your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick mamma
Come on baby tell me what's the word

Word up everybody say
When you hear the call you've gotta get it underway
Word up it's the code word
No matter where you say it you know that you'll be heard

Now you sucker DJ's that think you're fly
There's gotta be a reason and you know the reason why
Why you put on your airs and you act real cool
Got to realise that you're acting like fools
Now there's music we can use it
You're free to dance
We don't have the time for psychological romance
No romance, no romance, no romance for me and mamma
Come on baby tell me what's the word

Word up everybody say
When you hear the call you've gotta get it underway
Oouuhh

Dial L for love, Dial L for love, Dial L for love
Yea yeaahhh

W.O.R.D UP, W.O.R.D RRRHHAAAHA, W.O.R.D UP, W.O.R.D UP

They butchered the song. It was not meant to be rapped, and it opened the way to crappy rap/rock bands like Linkin Park and the rap song with Ozzy's "aye aye aye".

Not to mention it's labeled as RUN DMC feat. Aerosmith, when infact it's Aerosmith's song.

Which is even more hilarious since it was Steven Tyler's idea.

And no, it didnt' open the way for crappy bands like Linkin Park, that's a mystery that is incapable of being explained.

There was a techno-pop version of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' that was made by a female artist in the UK(whose name escapes me) It gained more attention than it should have as it was released not long before Kurt topped himself...

I wouldnt be too dismayed though. If Alice wrote that song, he'd be making crazy money from anyone covering his song... In fact, whoever own the rights to the song would have had to have given permission for the techno thang to happen.

Tori Amos covered that too.

The Sisters Of Mercy's version of the Hot Chocolate song 'Emma' is probably my favourite cover, as it add so many new elements to the originally pretty brainless pop song.

Well, they must have liked it at least a little, seeing as how they also made a music video with Run DMC to promote the song.

Video was made when Tyler was on drugs. Drugs mess with your mind and make you do stupid things


Like being in a rap video.

Besides, even if he was in his sane mind, maybe they didn't like it later, happened with other songs. Just because you record something doesn't mean you like it, and in this case, it sucks.

So, stfu, you don't know what you're talking about, thanks.

Looked like they were playin their song, and then Run DMC bust through the wall and started rapping with them.

You know, the video was supposed to be symbolic. The whole kind of breaking the barrier between black/white music. Rap v Rock and whatnot.

But you know, I have no idea what the **** I'm talking about. :)

According to the guys in Run DMC, on VH1 I might add, it was all producer Rick Rubins idea. Run DMC thought it was a dumb idea, and they didn't even like the song much, or know wtf the lyrics were even about. They got Aerosmith onboard, did it, and the rest as they say, is history. Really ****ty history. As far as it opening the door for rap-metal, the only good thing to EVER come out of that ****-fest, was Faith No More. Period. And even they abandoned it.

Seems like all the video did was open Pandora's Box and start a ton of crappy hybrid bands. Color has nothing to do with it, ever hear of Jimi Hendrix?

That's right man. Sure, Patton did it at first, but he turned out to be so sooooo much more than that. Listen to freaking later material like "Ashes To Ashes", and tell me Mike Patton isn't one of the strongest vocalists/front men in the industry. FNM were virtual unknowns until Patton brought all his madness to the group. Even now that FNM are no longer a group, Patten's side projects continue to sell records.

No, I haven't heard of Jimi Little Wing Hey Joe Hendrix.

Regardless, Jimi Hendrix was wayyyy back there in the 60's. Rap listeners don't exactly listen to that kind of stuff. Therefore it was a way to bring something together that rap listeners would be used to and would be able to recognize. Likewise it had someone who listens to mostly rock hear a bit of rap.

There's no evidence that this collaboration started hybrid nu metal. :/

Aerosmith had also been dead for about 7 years when this happened, NO ONE knew Aerosmith, most didn't even know what or who Aerosmith was, they were yesterdays at the time. People knew who Jimi Hendrix more than Aerosmith.
