I just wrote (see directly below this post) that Kanye’s “Stronger” has been covered by 30 Second to Mars. After sharing the post on Facebook, it was brought to my attention that The Fray has covered Kanye’s “Heartless.” What is going on? Do I like it? I mean, kind of. I like that Kanye is being covered, but he’s being covered by pretty shitty bands and both have shown that it’s a pretty difficult to translate Kanye’s work.
While The Fray’s cover isn’t nearly as awful as 30 Seconds to Mars, it’s not good.
Kanye is iconic, but these covers just suck.
