Below you will find Poison's cover of the Loggin's and Mesina hit "Your Mama Don't Dance." I have many, many issues with it, but I'm curious to hear your take on the issue. Should our favorite bands be covering songs and making them worse? I mean how Poison turned this into a Top 10 hit is beyond me, in fact Y&T and Three Dog Night covered this song. I must be missing something.
In the daily video section you will see Motley Crue's version of the Sex Pistol's Anarchy, which is one of my favorites. That proves to me that covers can be done well, I guess the song just has to fit your style a little better.
Give us some examples of good covers or bad covers. You can even weigh in on the issue. Should Metal Bands be covering light rock hits?
Show me your horns,
