I don't see the point of it.

So, either they re-do the song exactly as it is, ...

Re: To The Band: Curse My Name Metalized

Come on, it practically wouldn't change anything, wouldn't take the ballad away from anyone, and add a flavour to the live performance of the song. Current version would be too hollow live, without all the extra instruments. And we all know how playback takes away the spirit away in a live concert.

So I propose to you, the band, to play it live in a metal way. The so...
