Short video clip (~20 seconds) of Evanescence playing a horrible cover of "People Are Strange" by The Doors. This was so bad I just had to share. Unfortunately I missed most of the song because I was laughing too hard.

Taken from the Family Values tour at the Tweeter Center in Camden, NJ on August 5, 2007.

I didn't realize, EV covering this song, with their own take on it, was butchering it....You also weren't laughing too hard, because if it was that funny, you would've been quick to record it. When EV fans go to see an EV show, and EV is doing a cover, they want to hear it the EV take on it, not The Doors version. 
@zelly51 I really didn't expect you to get the joke, and you didn't. At any rate, have fun swooning over over-marketed Dark Shadows fanfiction to the tired stylings of Linkin Park. The adults will be enjoying things of actual value. Bye, now. <3
@zelly51 "no about Knowing how to pronouns and grammar" ..... ....... Jules Winnfield has an urgent question for you. 
@zelly51 Your spelling is an example of the slow, painful death of the English language, and that makes me sad. And I don't necessarily need big words. I get by just fine with small ones, too. Matter of fact, I'm thinking of a few right now. <3
@zelly51 You have no idea what you're talking about. Also, your spelling is atrocious. The fact that you put 'Ray' in quotation marks automatically disqualifies you from commenting on the song in question. Ray Manzarek was the keyboardist for The Doors. If you're not aware of that, then all you're really doing is a knee-jerk defense of this band. I'm saying this song isn't meant to be covered in a manner completely contrary to its original performance, which is exactly what's going on here.

I love evanescence and i love this cover too... but the real song by the doors bores me....
i don't really listen to the doors, so i'm not gonna be the judge on whether they screwed it up or not. but they did a cover of "heart shaped box" by Nirvana on their Origin album and I like it a lot. every band makes mistakes, they're human just like you and i, no matter how famous they might be. ;D
I like Evanesence, and I can't like this. Probably because: A) No matter how cute Amy Lee is, or how much I like her voice, SHE'S NOT JIM. B) They once had a good guitarist, and I liked him. But, HE'S NOT ROBBIE. C) She can play a piano, but SHE'S NOT RAY. D) It's not really meant to be covered, particularly by someone with no experience in classic rock instrumentals, or anything approaching the fuzzy, eerie Doors sound that most people who actually LIKE this song are accustomed too. So.. no.

HEY, fuck you dude. lol (kidding) If it wasn't just thrown on there, and they had more time to practice, it would have been better. It was still awesome.
Am I the only one who was in Camden who liked the cover?
