    oh my god, I'm back on my bullshit Prestigious

    I think this might be the worst thing I've ever heard.

    Very different from the original, and has a completely different feel to it. I can see myself listening to it a few times... but at the same time, maybe not.

    Master of not knowing what the hell I'm doing.

    Generally I like this band, but this cover is not for me. Feels completely soulless compared to the original.

    I like the verses. They remind me of old tøp. Not a huge fan of the chorus things. If anything it makes me want to listen to My Chem which is never a bad thing.

    Posted in the MCR thread that I thought this was awful but on second listen I don't really mind it. It's different and they tried something new.

    The problem is, covering any song on this album is basically a poisoned chalice, as it's never going to be as good as the original. Except Mama. That song is terrible.

    Very lifeless and devoid of anything that made it interesting

    Really enjoyed this one. A few others on this compilation that I'm curious to hear as well.

    I love both the original and this cover. Can't please everyone, and I feel these are two polarizing bands to begin with.

    If this wasn't a cover it sounds like it could have been on Blurryface. The original is obviously a masterpiece but I like that twenty one pilots made it sound like their style.

    It's okay, but the original is so much better. It's kind of a pointless cover.

    I enjoy the original and this, I wonder what the MCR guys think of these covers...

    It's fine, but I've also heard a piano-only cover by TOP and I wish they would've stuck with that. Oh well.

    Listened to the whole Rock Sound CD and most of the covers fell flat - they sound like Glee covers. Why do these bands over-enunciate all the lyrics? That's where a lot of the emotion goes.

    Cancer is a good song but as an MCR Fan I started to hate it because they closed their live show with it 6 of the 11 times I saw them and it ruined it for me.

    Cheers to TOP for reimagining the song, as there's only like 3 songs on the whole Rock Sound CD that aren't exactly like the originals.

    I think they nailed this cover. Am I a huge fan of it? Not really. But it sounds like it could be on Blurryface which is kind of the point, to make a song your own. Too often covers are identical but worse and what is the point of that.

    One of my favourite albums of all time by I have always disliked that song.
