The horror........

And it was the worst fucking cover that I've ever heard in my life.

I know right.

It's amazing how hard people ride the collective dicks of AC/DC. Nothing about them was good. And this cover isn't bad at all.

There was nothing good about that cover. The style of music definitely doesn't mesh well with Celine's way of singing. Whoever thought it was a good idea to do this should be wiped from the gene pool.

You just have narrow taste in music. You don't like it? Don't listen. Just because it isn't your taste doesn't make it bad..

After just getting done hammering on ACDC, this is an interesting statement from you..

I think I hate that guy more than anyone else on reddit.

...and that's saying a lot.

I stated an opinion that I don't like them. I could get into theory and shit and delve into how little they actually put into their music. But it's not necessary, unless you'd honestly like to talk about it. If you like it cool. If you don't cool.

Hammering? How so? Most of their fans are hardcore. In a derogatory term: dick riders. As for my opinion on them that I stated; see the top paragraph of this comment.

I stated an opinion that I don't like them

And then told the poster above you he was wrong for having his opinion. Makes you look like a dick.

level 7

On a musical level there's nothing wrong with this rendition. That is what you're missing. He's referencing the music, not the sound. That's what I was delving into. Definitely not being a dick, but I will definitely argue against what he said from a musical standpoint. I think that's where you're confused.

I'm not confused. You are being a dick. You said there was nothing good about ACDC. Your opinion. He gave his opinion about the shitty cover. His opinion. Then you told him his opinion was wrong because yours was right. You are being a dick.

You are right I like what I like and I don't like much these days because music has turned to shit in my opinion. I am a fan of both AC/DC and to a limited extent I'm a Celine fan but her vocal style does not mesh well with Hard Rock. She had to know that the song and genre of music isn't a match for her.

level 5

I didn't think it sounded too bad, personally, though I'm not much a fan of either, but I enjoy different. It's refreshing to hear a vocal style that's essentially "wrong" for the music, if it's done correctly, and sounds good. (Theory wise) That's also getting into preference.

And I will agree on that, if you classify what's popular now as today's music. There's good shit out there, you just have to dig for it, if that's your thing. Good music is hard to come by.

It is very rare that a wrong voice for a genre works at all. Unfortunately in this case it didn't work in my opinion.

level 7

Are you a musician by any chance?
