Come Cover Me: Linkin Park & "Rolling in the Deep"

Why I'm including this on a metal blog is questionable, I know, since LP seems to have left metal behind.  The connection is tenuous to this blog, I know, but I thought it was worth posting nonetheless, mainly because I think this song is so good.

About a month ago, a friend of mine introduced me to British sensation Adele, and I have to say I really dig her stuff.  This song, "Rolling in the Deep" is one of her big hits and I quite like it.  Earlier this month, LP covered it at the iTunes festival in England.  Say what you want about LP, Chester Bennington is an amazing singer, even if LP has gone down the tubes a bit.

Here is the original by Adele.



And here is LP's version:

Actually, I think Adele is a very good singer. Though I am not a big fan of LP, this cover is just okay. The original is by far the best one even though that song in particular is played a lot on the radio these days. The song isn't bad at all, but radio can kill even good songs too tbh.

Well, because I don't listen to main stream radio, I'd never heard Adele until last month. I'm not sick of her yet! :P
