    It's kind of funny that she's grown up around her father who has had a somewhat successful music career himself, and she has not once, not even by accident, ran into a vocal coach.

    Basically, she was never taught to rest her voice so it would recover. It was always scales, scales, sing, sing...but never rest. Part of it was the pressure of being “Disney’s little sweetheart.” (My words, but that was implied) The typical child star thing. That show blew up and Disney wrung as much out of it as they could while she was still young enough to play the part.

    I don't think it's common to find black metal versions of pop songs, but I'm sure there are other examples (which probably also cover better known songs than that one).

    One funny thing is that that Weird Al song "White and Nerdy" is way more popular than the original.

    Sorry, but this is exactly what the op was talking about. She even sings like a dude and it really doesn't differ that much from the original.

    Now Heart have always been heavily into Led Zep. This is much better:

    I'm talking about having heard the cover first, then finding out about the group three decades after they broke up.

    In a world where Mel & Kim and Salt-N-Pepa exist, I should have been at least vaguely aware of them.

    They've got huge ***** . I would **** myself if I had to play Stairway in front of Page, Plant and Jones. I'd run as fast as I could if someone suggested that. If I could do it in a completely different way maybe...

    So, how do you pick songs you cover? Or is it that much different for MC and other well known artists?

    I'm pretty sure all the way back to Annette Funicello, SOMEBODY was training those kids.

    I mean, you don't hear about of these problems from Hilary Duff or Selena Gomez.

    Even if, as radiocaster said, she sings it "like a dude" (I suppose Nancy plays guitar "like a dude", FMD), I don't think I recall any other band bringing Plant to tears. (I guess he was sitting on some nachos and they were, like, extra spicy.)

    If I was choosing songs, it's mostly "I want to hear what a (genre) version of this would sound like". I spend a lot of time on YouTube searching '(song) (genre) cover' and that's a good way to find bands I wouldn't normally hear otherwise.

    That makes a good point: generational bias for classics of the form. Some young folks will hear/find Blondie by way of this cover, and that’s fine, so what? Good for them. The generation that saw the birth of rock n roll speak so highly of it, worship it, but in another 150 years its way past being commercialized and its just another YouTube video history lesson.

    Let's just hope there's some kind of war in the meantime and all trace of The Tide Is High is eradicated.

    Thing is, for a youngster that is not a cover of a tune he or she heard before, it's simply a brand "new song".

    whenever i hear someone like miley cyrus cover a song like heart of glass, i assume that her record company owns that song and wants to sell it to a new generation. the record company does not care about a new artistic representation of the song, it cares about sales.

    if i was a record company, that's what i would do.

    You know that your point of view from artist references from the past is by definition only the best to survive through time ?

    Therefore, you only have a confirmation bias of some dumb misconception about past because you've listened a ****ty artist that won't survive through time because, that was crap.

    While you basically haven't Heard about past crap, because crap goes to the flush of collective memories ?
