    Almost 20 million views in 3 months and its on the pop charts. I have mixed feelings because Im happy for the success but on the other hand a heavy band has to soften up to get that mainstream success but I guess thats how its always been.

    It's OK, but it would have been way cooler if he found someone to harmonize with other than an effects board so he could have done the song justice.

    It's also autotuned to fuck and I honestly think it's cheating unless it's your gimmick.

    I think their Land of Confusion cover was better.

    I think the #1 song in the country right now is a Rhianna song featuring Drake so in that case I just have to ask why are white people listening to that shit?

    It's OK but, like most covers or re-makes, it just makes me want to turn it off and listen to the original.

    He sucks throbbing donkey dick. Way too into his edgy face piercing gear. Fuck him and his ruining of an old song.

    Personally I liked it. I ran it twice. The first time without seeing the video then the second time I watched the video. Listening to it was very pleasing. The images, not so much, but they fit the lyrics.
