Has anybody got the Walmart Def Leppard bonus CD with the cover of Dear Friends on it?

EDIT:

You can hear a sample here:

That pretty much wraps up the "Def Leppard and Queen sound alot alike theory"...which I have never understood anyway.

That makes two of us. I've always considered Def Leps crap.

This has to rank as one of the worst cover versions I have ever heard. Really.

What in the hell were they thinking? They are such huge Queen fans, why they would do this is beyond me.

I would rather listen to Crazy Frog than hear that again.

Well, crap. With my lousy connection, I can only hear a second here and there, and then it needs to buffer.

"Dear Friends" being one of my fave Queen songs, for its simplicity, I can only imagine...

But from reading this thread, sounds like I should be grateful I can't hear this version of it.

I didn't think it was that bad... it could've been a lot worse.

It could indeed have been worse.

Longer would be the most obvious way...

Personally, I like Def Leppard, and some of the covers are ok (downloaded the album a while back), but this particular one is just....not good.

We are aware that "Def" is a band and not a person right?

Hmmm.....I guess I'm in the minority here. I like it. It reminds me of Cheap Trick.

Joe Elliot better than Paul Rodgers??

Thats a f**king joke.

Honestly..... I would kiss the holy ground beneath the sky of our lord to come into a contact with a frontman like Freddie or Paul Rogers.

Honestly..... if Joe Elliot showed up for a audition, I probably would not let him in the band. To me, the man has no vocal power whatsoever.

Freddie could rise over top of any drums or guitar.... Joe Elliot get buried underneath everything unless its a acoustic ballad.

In my honest opinion Roger Taylor is a far superior vocalist to Joe Elliot from Leppard.

Elliot is not in Mercury or Rodgers league.

I personally think Paul is one of the best singers of his genre. And he looks like Chuck Norris!! Ha!
