    Some songs aren't meant to be covered. That's one of them.

    :rolleyes:

    I must say there is a slight difference between Guns n roses and Avril Lavigne. Avril Lavigne should be shot. Oh yes...*evil grin*

    Has it ever crossed your minds that some people might like it, and thus be more likely to go and buy the WarChild album, and thus raise more for sick and dying kids ??

    Doubt it.

    That's why I hate the song - not just because of the music, but because it just deliberately tries to upset people and make them feel guilty and horrible. The war's over now so what's the point? I'm sure there are better ways of advertising that album or that charity. Before anyone snaps at me, I'm giving to charities helping children in Iraq, I just hate the way Miss Lavigne is rubbing it in anyone's faces.

    Also... does anyone else have an intense urge to grab her hair, wash it and tuck it behind her ears whenever they see her? Or is it just me? :confused:

    You haven't seen the seriously maimed kids on the news then. Or some of the kids that no longer have a mam or dad. They need all the help they can get.

    There may be other ways of raising money, but to say she's rubbing peoples faces in it is the most fucked up thing I've heard in ages.

    i didnt say anything about the cause, just the song but now you come to mention it, i did think about all the starving children, and im sure the two hours of studio time it took her to do the song/video are sooo taxing on her and its good to see she's giving money to charity by taking it off her legions of teenyboppers
    its also good to see she's going out to help them in iraq, o wait...


    (sorry if i sound angry, ive just done two coursework assignments, am kinda angry and arent allowed out into the sunlight until i change my sheets/fumigate my bedroom)

    I thought that, too.

    But not to do with the name...but for some reason the rolley eyes at the bottom of (almost) all the posts seemed to effeminate them.

    I'm not sure *why* I thought that.

    Anyway

    Decent covers of songs are good.
    Metallica's "Garage Inc" album is good, for instance.

    I didn't like the original version or Knocking on Heaven's Door, though.

    It just looks so flat and lifeless and greasy! I think it makes her look really ugly - if she brushed it back a little and made it less harsh/straight, I think she'd look prettier and her nose wouldn't look so weird...

    What I don't like is the fact it's been covered so many times. Guns N Roses did it but also a children's choir did it a few years ago..

    Do you really think she cares whether you think she is pretty or not? I am sure whilst she is sitting in her big house rolling in her money, she is really thinking "oh that kid from TheSite.Org thinks my hair looks greasy, must do something about that"? I doubt it.

    Ms Lavigne is a marketing man's wet dream. In a few years everybody will be saying "Avril who?"

    At least her cover is all in the name of charity, look at the number Gareth Gates has ruined!

    How sad is it that todays singers etc copy previous songs etc why can't they make their own songs up and leave previous ones alone!!
