It's a close call for me, honestly. I didn't like Melanie B's version at all, and the singers for the other three sound pretty similar, so it comes down to what style of music I think the song lends itself to. So, with all that being said, I vote for Cameo.

@ nichodemus : You are SO right! Sorry! I did enter the correct score count in my personal data for the thread, but I seemed to have failed in presenting the correct one here... sowwee! (o.O)

@ cooldownman : Fair enough, BUT... that's why there are example videos added to the battle's presentation every time, so people who never heard a certain original or cover can listen to it and then decide!
So, again... your reasoning is not sufficient to get the vote counted. Listen to the other versions too and THEN state your vote WITH reasoning, ok? Thanx! ;)

First score count shows a wide variety of votes for (at least) 3 of the 4 featured artists!

2 - Cameo (Original version)

This is a nice battle going right now! At least there's more excitement in diversity than with the first battle where one blindly defeated the other contestant... (o.O)

Keep those (reasoned!) votes coming people!! =D

Again, the metalhead in me says I vote for KorN.
Although I don't like the song at all KorN is my favorite out of these groups. And, I think they did the best job.

So, KorN...

Mel B's version is really horrendous.. that song needs the rhythm, it cannot flow like it does in her version. Also her music isn't my style at all..
Korn made a good song but it doesn't really match together, the song and their style. It doesn't sound bad but I think they didn't hit the nail there.
Cameo did a good work with rhythm and, here I disgress with some others, also with the voice; not that I liked it so much, but it matches with the song.
However Gun did the best interpretation in my opinion, they kept most of the original feel and yet made a rock song out of it that has it's own life and style. I would propose the following ranking:

1st: Gun
2nd: Cameo
3rd: Korn
4th: Melanie B

The thread's starting battle had a good posting count, but it seems like this one has less popularity instead... only half the amount of users checked in to vote sadly... =/

Well, I think my personal vote is needed in this battle as I feel Cameo deserves the credit for coming up with the song in the first place and because he gave it a nice funky groove! The cover version by Gun was a good second as they made a slight change in music, but at the same time added a new and better feeling to the song! Korn was allright, but added nor changed anything to the song and Melanie B just OVERdid it and ended up with a monster... (o.O)

With my vote counted it's time to do a new score count and warn that you all have 1 day left to vote as a new battle will be posted tomorrow! Hurry hurry... ;)

Score count shows :
_________________________________________________

3 - Cameo (Original version)
-VS-
2 - Gun (Cover version)
-VS-
0 - Melanie B (Cover version)
-VS-
3 - KorN (Cover version)

_________________________________________________

Again... hurry to get those votes in if you want to people!

New battle is posted tomorrow!! =0

Personally, I always preferred Korn's version. Frankly, in my opinion it's way better than the original. Korn did a quite good job even though the song is not exactly their style.

Plus, Korn's Word Up is my cell-phone ringtone and in my book that counts for a lot.

2 - Gun (Cover version)
0 - Melanie B (Cover version)

Time for the next round in the "OvC"! Presenting the first suggestion by an AG user...

Battle # 3 : Aerials (Suggested by Zamiel, thanx!)

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8153/7348256300_8157a6844c_z_d.jpg

The song is originally by System of a Down, but was covered by 2 other bands, all with their own style and touch added to the song. There even were 2 more covers I found, but they were of insignificant quality, so I decided not to add them to the battle. ;)

All the different versions :

- System of a Down (Original version - 2002)

- Amon Amarth (Cover version - 2011)

- The Pretty Reckless (Cover version - 2012)

And here we go again! =D
