Does it annoy you when a band gets popular ..by covering someone elses song

for example...Quiet Riot...Come on feel the noise..isnt even their own song..it was written by a band called slade...bout like idk 10 years b4 quiet riot covered it..just like the song momma we're all crazy..another slade song..quiet riot got famous for those 2 covers...and u never hear any other songs about them...
I like disturbed...aswell..but it bugged me to hear their genesis cover on the radio over n over n over again..like i love disturbed..and ik its prob not their fault..but they have alot of better songs they could play...(disturbed bad example)

just saying =P

Disturbed is a VERY bad example. Just because the song was played on the radio doesn't mean that's what made them famous =/ The song that made them sky rocket to fame was "Down With the Sickness" way back in 2000. There's nothing wrong with bands doing covers. It is annoying if that's all they get known for, but Disturbed isn't known just for their covers. They're more known for their original work.

This just made me think of something. I can;t remember the name of the band it was stolen from, but the famous guitar part for Stairway To Heaven is a note for note rip off of a song played by a band that opened for Led Zepp on one of their earlier tours.

Maybe. I know the band only asked for an apology and credit for coming up with the part, and Led Zepp never even returned the letter.
