There's no way to put your mark on a song like "Welcome to the Jungle" or "Sweet Child o' Mine," but most of the hardcore bands on this tribute nonetheless try it. When Dillinger Escape Plan spazz-cores "My Michelle" into oblivion or Zombie Apocalypse turns "Welcome to the Jungle" into screamo, the results are cool, but completely irrelevant to the originals. It would have been interesting to see a band as talented as DEP take on these songs in a straightforward fashion. Although bands like God Forbid and Every Time I Die put in admirable efforts, the only real success here is Eighteen Visions' version of "Paradise City," which combines the riff-y effectiveness of the original with 18V's own punky, sleaze-rock tendencies.
