Did I say you made any comparison?
I made the comparison, with the conclusion that Frijid Pink do not stack up to those two artists, and thus their re-interpretation of a traditional song with typical American excess and lack of any subtlety is abhorrent.
My sortee into left field was merely to highlight your odious claim that their song was the best variation amongst many. Its a cacophonic catastrophe, yet little wonder it made the American charts, which have been frequently blessed with some of the worst pieces of music ever recorded.
I must admit I am astonished that you challenge my taste in music. If the dirges you post here are any guide, I imagine you'd regard "Metal Machine Music" as a masterpiece.
Why am I NOT surprised that you are "astonished". You are so wrapped up in yourself that you actually believe your own bullshit. Everyone knows that you think yourself the definitive authority on music around here but what escapes you is the fact that almost everyone here knows you to be full of shit as well.
BTW, I'm not a fan of Lou Reed, so there.
As far as some of the worst music ever recorded goes we can all thank you Aussies for that shit. It was YOU who brought us the awful falsetto screeching Brit/Aussie's group "The Bee Gees". A musical act who almost single-handedly created a genre of music (disco) that has become the biggest joke in musical history and rightfully so. The best contribution the Gibb brothers ever made to music was when they all fucking died.
In fact with the exception of AC/DC it's hard to find an Australian band that anyone with a functioning ear can listen to without vomiting.
Furthermore, what do you know about what's on the American music charts? You claim to despise American mass media entertainment and you also claim that you morally superior Assies routinely spurn American entertainment outlets. I think someone is lying through his dentures about not watching or listening to American mass media. It's becoming more and more obvious that you are fascinated with the US based entertainment industry. Don't feel bad, most of the worlds best vapid minds are, it's just that they usually aren't as hypocritical about as you.
