SenseiLeRoof;3620477 said:They probably didn't because of how few people have heard of Cameo in this day and age, whereas Korn is extremely famous.
Skode;3627734 said:Yet im sure more people have heard of Amy Winehouse compared to the Zutons or Iggy Pop compared to Everlife.
barnabyjones786;3617357 said:sounds the same to me and i listen to ALOT of korn and i compare music games recordins all the time like smooth criminal by AAF the video version and album version i have has extra parts in it i think the word up change was done by HMX maybe but hey its still a good song either way aye?

SenseiLeRoof;3636096 said:Something I've learned... the original is not always better than the cover. For "Word Up", I'd say they're about the same.Examples of the cover being better than the original:"*** On Feel the Noize". Quiet Riot put a lot more energy into their cover than Slade put in the original, and it's more fun to sing along to."Bills, Bills, Bills". I take Jonathan Coulton's cover in a heartbeat."Big Yellow Taxi". The original singer (whose name escapes me currently) actually goofs off at the end of the song. Never mind that it's a song about loss and regret, right? That won't ruin the significance at all, will it? Suuuuuuuuure."Die, Die My Darling". Again, more energy by Metallica than the Misfits.And so on. But you get the idea.

mayhem117;3696686 said:Yup it is different!!! Listen to the line "If there's music we can use it be free to dance" thats from the actual song.In the game they say "If there's music we can use it your free to dance" not only is the line different but it sounds off as well.That solo is also nowhere to be heard and the actual song has a more rockin' section before it ends
