New feature where I give you the original classic and then see what some other covers would be like. Exclusive only to Rock…Paper…Blog.
Let’s begin with Ram Jam’s version of the song. Great southern rock guitar and killer drum-solo. Also this might be the ugliest band I’ve ever seen.
Here is the Spiderbait version with Wiggles video. The Wiggles are Australian dudes who think they are on the star trek enterprise.
Here is Leadbelly’s original.
This is the heaviest song I’ve ever heard Meatloaf do. It’s like his Rob Zombie impression. Cool.
And finally we have a Sheryl Crow live cover of it.
