I have, but don't search for covers. It is quite obvious not everyone shares my opinion. If I want to hear a song that is relatively new, I will just listen to the original version. To me, the point of a cover song should be for a relatively unknown band to get a live audience involved by playing a classic song that the audience would enjoy that also represents the style of the band performing the cover.

For example, a punk band covering a song by The Misfits.

What about when bands re-imagine a song to their own sounds? Like any Punk Goes... Compilation.

You don't understand the point of cover songs. Stop going to Bennigans on Wednesday nights and hearing a high school alt-rock band cover some Radiohead song.

You still have Bennigans?? I thought they all closed.

Covering a song as a tribute to the artist and covering a song just to make money are two completely different things. I'm referring to the Punk Goes series specifically.

What about YouTube artists like Pomplamoose or Karmin? Them covering current radio hits and re-imagining them to their sound actually got them somewhat known, and signed.
