The Knack abused by Hammerfall

3 Mar
A great guitar riff, seriously cool drums and excellent powerpop choirs. This seems like the recipe for a great powerpop tune doesn’t it?

The great song My Sharona by The Knack has got all of the above and is a modern classic. The song is the debut single by The Knack, released in 1979 from their album Get the Knack. It reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart where it remained for six weeks.

The swedish metal band Hammerfall has recorded their version of the song and it is – as expected a – horrible thing. Why destroy such a fine piece of pop? Shame on you Hammerfall!
