    Just something off topic, I was wondering what are your favorite song(s) that cross 2 or more music genres?

    Here are my top two (I do have others, but these are my top ones):

    Walk this way by Aerosmith Ft Run DMC and
    We made it by Busta Rhymes Ft Linkin Park

    So what are yours?

    do the songs on the S&M album by Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. If so, my favourite is nothing else matters from that album.

    D*mn forgot about that album, one of the few times when Heavy metal and classical really go together :biggrin

    Don't think I've heard of them... Will try to keep my ears open for them :)

    S&M does indeed rock. First heard it when I was using it for a psychology experiment. Its what got me into Metallica.

    Nothing else matters was actually what caused the whole thing, incidentally. Metallica wanted some orchestral backing for the song (which you can kind of hear when listening to it), and whilst they were doing it, they conductor suggested they do a concert.

    Apparently he heard nothing of it for about 10-15 years, then their agent phoned up one day, and told him 'Metallica want to do it'. He replied 'Do What?'. :biggrin

    Its a fantastic album though. If they ever did it again, I would be sorely tempted to go along - probably one of the few times id be tempted to go to a proper gig.

    Anything by Apocalyptica (who also do instrumental Metallica) is good.

    First heard them when they were the opening act for Rammstein at their MEN gig a few years back (the Reise Reise tour). They also did 'Hall of the Mountain King' and were very, very awesome.

    There are a few good cover versions (not necessarily albums as a whole) where covers have been done well. I believe they still cross genres as they've been re-done by a rock band with a new musical twist on the existing material...

    Godhead's version of Eleanor Rigby is a notable one. Also I loved the Perfect Circle cover of Imagine (very melancholy, brought out a good 'other side' of the lyrics).

    Having said that, the whole of A Perfect Circle's third album eMotive were covers, though I think of perhaps quite obscure artists. The only song on the album that isn't a cover is Counting Bodies (Like Sheep...) and I like the album as a whole (this is an eventual liking. When I listened to the album for the first time, I hated it. It grew on me).

    I also love Disturbed's cover of Shout (Tears for Fears).

    Will probably add to this later after I've had porridge and woken up some more :)

    If it's two genres colliding, both have gotta be from the soudtrack to Judgment Night

    Faith No More & Boo Yaa TRIBE - Another Body Murdered
    Mudhoney & Sir Mix-A-Lot - Freak Momma

    Incidentally Dales, Clawfinger were the first live big band I ever saw, as a spotty 13 year old in Brizton Academy, they were first on in supporting Alice In Chains, bought their album immediately afterwards

    My two favourite 2 collaborations, I suppose they are genre-crossers:

    UNKLE featuring Thom Yorke: Rabbit In Your Headlights
    Massive Attack featuring Mos Def : Eye Against Eye (from the Blade 2 soundtrack)

    The UNKLE track has an absolutely crazy video, well worth a youtube viewing.

    Actually now I think about it, March of Death with DJ Shadow and Zach de la Rocha from Rage against the machine is better the pair I have just put down Really angry anti-war record released after the Iraq invasion. Plus it was free to download when it first came out!!

    I notice there's a lot of posts that show artist who are rap with rock bands.

    If you like this combo then I can highlt recommend Judgement night a soundtrack taken from the film:- Judgement night with Emilio Estevez
    it's got artist such as Pearl Jam with Cypress hill; Faith no More with Boo Ya Tribe; Helmet with House of Pain
    Slayer with Ice-T; Biohazard with Onyx!

    I wish it was on the outsider!!! That album is appalling. The DJ shadow I know and love is no more I'm afraid. Entroducing is my favourite album I've ever heard. March of death was a free mp3 when it was issued so you don't need to worry about your ISP snooping on your illegal downloads!!, google the track name, you should be able to find a copy of it.

    Am I right in thinking they were the total nutters who play classical instruments in a heavy metal style? If so they were very entertaining when I went to see Rammstein. Perfect support act for them really and it's not often that support acts are any good at all. (IMO)

    I'd have to say, currently in my collection, taht gets played often, are Hayseed dixie. They do country covers of POison by ALice Cooper, and Ace of Spades by Motorhead. Its quite cool really, and definatley crosses genres.
