    This is not a song that should be covered. It's absolutely perfect. Don't touch it

    Judging on everybody reaction I am reaffirmed in my decision to not listen to this, but I will say if want a good cover of this long look no further then the accapella version sang in bio shock infinite. It's incredible and I've listened to long after playing the game.

    What song did Disturb ruin?

    right on!

    Before listening—as a huge Beach Boys fan—I couldn't imagine this cover being anything but disappointing. Wasn't prepared for it being as bad as it is, though.

    As a huge BB fan too.. I think they did a pretty decent (and respectful) job covering "God Only Knows". I'd kill for an instrumental version of this.. yeh not fan of AV7 vocals :eh:

    Oh, they ruined it? I thought the song was a hit and most people liked it. I think it's a great cover and his voice is really good in it.

    A lot of people like it. Just a personal preference of mine that I don't. Sound Of Silence is also one of my favorite songs so maybe that's why

    Didn't they also ruin a Simon & Garfunkel song? Or am I thinking of someone else?

    I don't know what's worse. The song, or the YouTube comments not realising this is a cover.

    They've done covers of Tears for Fears...


    ...and Genesis.
