"What's the worst remix of a song that was pushed hard ?"
Sun Dec-02-18 01:44 PM by handle

          

I know there's like 100 remixes for a lot of songs, but post a remix version that was pushed by the label that significantly worst than the original single or album version.

Great original song:
Change - Killing Joke
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbqwmxsXT2o



Horrible remix they pushed 12 years later for some reason:
Killing Joke - Change (Spiral Tribe Mix)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyqIkM-XrpI

But the original is much better than the remix to me. Maybe it's because that song is so indelible for me.

This is a hot take, but the original Shut 'Em Down is much better than the Pete Rock remix. The remix is good but the album version is great and I don't like thinking of the Pete Rock version. It's really a different song rather than a remix.

^^^ I've thought this since '91

the beat on the original is *much* more powerful and in line with the vibe of the lyrics

pete rock's loop, not so much (including the speech cuts) and leave me cold comparatively

Different takes. I’d say they were equal, if anything.

For whatever reason, I never heard the remix while Apocalypse was current.

In fact I had no idea there was a remix until My_SP_1000_is_Broken_Again posted a mix that had the remix on it back about five years ago.

I finally heard it but it didn't live up to the hype some folks on here gave it.

The beat is fine but it just doesn't match the OG. I appreciate that Pete put a new spin on the song, it just didn't work for me.

man, i always thought the same damn thing!!. the original hits harder than a mofo. i mean that beat is a like a bomb going off every second and a half. that remix beat and Chuck's lyrics is like oil and water. I mean the jazzy horn isn't working for me when Chuck is on some, I testified my mama cried black people died when the other man lied. and then the video too!!! that video was dope too and wasn't vibing with that pete rock beat.

To me, that is THE GOAT remix, and usually the standard by which I hold hip hop remixes to.

Different strokes, I suppose

I agree that the album version is dope and underrated.....sometimes I do like the OG better, cuz it hits a lot harder. I just wouldn't put Pete's mix that far below it IMO

simon says, same story... but i hardly ever hear that remix anymore (thank god).

can't even remember the last time i heard OG flava in ya ear tho. everyone came with tough verses on there (wasnt Biggie dissing Craig?). In 94 all you ever heard was the OG and that still goes!!!

While probably not technically a remix, this habit of throwing on an "urban" artist to make a song more palatable to urban radio stations really sucks.

For a while, my local radio station played this exclusively, and may still do it...TODISDAY (c) wilder

It only really irks me because they took a line that Sam absolutely bodied and let Mary sing an unremarkable version of it.

Hell, throw the JT/Beyonce End of Time song in this pile as well.
