Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Tidal wave, cause shooting water gets you nowhere.

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 08:36 AM)

Beast Wars Starsream "I am AIR COMMANDER Starscream of the DECEPTICON BATTLEFLEET!"

@  Nevermore : (02 August 2020 - 07:02 AM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

I don't particularly care for the original song at all, but I like this cover.

(Also, thank you for posting the Joan Jett cover of "Dirty Deeds" a little while back, Destron; I've since come to find that I like it better than the AC/DC version.)

There was a thread in General Discussion a month or show showing off the new Microsoft Surface tablet, with the demo video featuring this fantastic cover of Pure Imagination:

 

 

Changes a somewhat wistful little ditty into something dramatic and awe-inspiring.

I know OP posted the Johnny Cash version of this on the previous page. But since part of the reason for this topic is to be able to compare and contrast (plus I just listened to the NIN and Johnny Cash versions side by side)...I thought I'd post both. Of course, language warning for the use of "shit." But considering we can post that uncensored anyway...

A couple days ago I started playing Final Fantasy XV. I only played to the first convenient save point since I want to finish other games before really digging into a new one.

But that's beside the point. During the opening title screen where they're pushing a car, there's this totally fabulous cover of Stand By Me. It got me obsessing over this new cover version and the original version. I've listened to both the past couple days and of course that led me to watching the movie tonight.

So now I have this idea in my head of "what versions of songs do people prefer, the original or the cover?"

I don't know how many videos can be imbedded in a single post...so I'm just going to post vids of this song to start off. As the discussion takes off (if the discussion takes off) feel free to bring up other songs.

A few ideas include: American Woman (Guess Who vs. Lenny Kravitz), I Love Rock and Roll (The Arrows vs. Joan Jett).

What ever you want to come up with. But first I have to start it off with this. Which is better?

The original (Ben E. King)


The Cover (Florence + The Machine)


I can't choose to be honest. Hug pride! Either one of these will bring me to tears.

So once upon a time I bought the Star Trek III soundtrack and found an interesting surprise.

 

For reference, here's the standard Main Theme:

 

And here's what was at the end of the soundtrack:

 

Yes, that is a very 80's rock-ish remix of the theme which somehow manages to be awesome in it's own right, maybe moreso than the actual theme.

 

I've never heard of Group 87, who composed it, but they apparently have a bit of a discography online!

Well, anyone who's been following the quotes page or the video game section can probably tell what my new obsession is (The Last of Us). I haven't even finished the first game yet (not even close), but I saw the trailer for the second game and...damn!

Anyway, there's a point to this. In a departure from the norm, I'll start with the cover first:

Ashley Johnson (voice actress for Ellie in The Last of Us). Skip to 1:05. Warning, disturbing images.
