2.0 out of 5 stars Quite lame actually February 24, 2001
By Chuck
Format:Audio CD
Not bad to spin once or twice, but the whole problem with these remake/tribute/cover CD's is that many of the songs sound pretty much like the original recording, rendering the new version pretty much pointless. There's a couple of tunes on "Punk Goes Metal" that are a bit different and unique- "Love Song" by Ten Foot Pole is pretty cool and the Atari's version of "I Remember You" is fun. But most of the songs end up sounding just like the originals. The guitar and drum sound is definitely in that pop/punk vein but it doesn't do enough to set a song like "Looks That Kill" or "Little Fighter" apart from the original. And the only way you can tell the Ozzy covers apart are the American accents on the vocals. I can't really speak for the covers of Leather Pirate's "Why Rock" or St. Madness' "Sexual Abuse" since I've never heard of either of those two bands. But if you're not expecting much, it's a decent batch of '80s hard rock redone, but not all that exciting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fairy Tale Album?? July 7, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Once upon a time, Joey surfed on to [the web]hoping to find the best cover album ever. He happened to stumble across "Punk Goes Metal" and gave it a disapproving glance, thinking to himself "The eighties were horrible. Come on! Look at these artists! I've never seen them on MTV!" Since Billy's birthday was coming up, Joey decided to buy it for him for a joke. When the CD finally came, Joey gave it to Billy and forced him to pop it in his stereo at once, all the while thinking they'd have a great laugh about it. The first song came on and suddenly Joey realized that this CD was actually good. In fact, this CD was very good. These bands took songs he thought [were bad]and made them great. Billy on the other hand loved the eighties, and he was impressed at how these songs he thought were perfect could actually be improved! By the end on the CD, both Joey and Billy were singing along and having a wonderful time, and they lived happily ever after.

1.0 out of 5 stars Metal fans, avoid at all costs. December 1, 2004
By J-Raff
Format:Audio CD
If you're a fan of metal, particularly from the 80s, beware. This CD is full of butchered versions of some of your favorite songs, by emo and pop/punk bands. I wonder if this is supposed to be a tribute to metal, or an insult.

"I Remember You", originally by Skid Row and covered here by the Ataris, is particularly bad. Once a sincere, emotional ballad with an awesome guitar solo, The Ataris managed to turn it into run-of-the-mill pop/punk garbage. I half expected the singer to scream "let's go!" at some point in the song. And speaking of the singer, he can't even handle the entire song, and is forced to sample Sebastian Bach's original lyrics later on.

And as if that weren't bad enough, their are butchered versions of classic songs by Guns N' Roses, Judas Priest, Motley Crue, and ACDC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lightning Strikes Twice May 3, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Personally I think this is a really awesome cd, and being an ozzy fan, i think "strung out" did a really good job on "bark at the moon", there are people who really like to critiuqe things, they can say whatever they want. my favorite time to listen to this cd is when im driving in my car,(among 200 other cd's i own) I can feel the energy and magnitude it possesses. This is a great CD to add to any colection, See you guys later.

4.0 out of 5 stars This CD is GREAT! August 2, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Ok... I used to work for a very famous Metal record label (that this CD covers some of their artists) and I have to say, this album is really good. Most of the songs are done seriously -- and that's not a bad thing. Do yourself a favor, if you're either a punk or a metal fan, pick this CD up.
