Getting your song covered is something most famous artists have to contend with.
In some cases, the artist finds it as a form of flattery, in some – they’re not crazy about it.
And the covers themselves vary wildly in quality – some are OK, some aren’t too good and then there are the select few that rival or exceed the quality of the original version.
Michael Jackson, due to his notoriety as an artist has had to contend with many cover versions, but perhaps the most famous is Alien Ant Farm’s take on “Smooth Criminal”
Well this cover can rival that one for pure originality, take a listen and see where you rank it in the list of great cover versions.
