Avril Lavigne to cover Metallica at tribute
The public outcry on this is generally thumbs down, but I am actually excited to hear this. All I hear are DJs complaining and hardcore metal heads compaining and everyone is complaining, but whats the big deal? They're acting like she's going cover Battery or something out of her league and therefore butcher it. I really think shes going to stick with something a little more low key. My money is going down on the song Nothing Else Matters, which I am convinced she can good job of covering. I would also say Unforgiven, but I have a feeling that song would be reserved for someone with a bit higher status.
I seriously don't know why this sickens so many people. It only makes people sick because they love to hate her, or hating her is cool, which is ridiculous. She isn't even that bad. I'm sick of Complicated as much as the next guy, but get over it.
As far as the other performers at this tribute
Limp Bizkit - Now these guys I'm actually worried about, because I can see the band being unable to handle covering anything. Word on the street is Fred likes Master of Puppets, and has covered it in the past, and hasn't done it well. I predict a butchering.
Korn - I don't like Korn very much, but they can do this. Korn is basically heavy metal only slowed down. I think they might do Sad But True, or something along those lines.
Sum 41 - As far as music goes, these guys have it in the bag. They can be pretty metal if they need to be. I don't know about the singer though. He's a bit to flowery to handle a Hetfield growl. They will probably do one of the newer songs like Fuel.
Anyone else have any views on this?
