Reply That was absolutely god awful. What a shame. Reply To chris 14473…..Great classical wonderful Irish music played by great Irish musicians sounds like great wonderful classic music, very pleasing,fun, exciting, and artistic. Great classic Irish music when attempted by a bunch of burnt-out rock assholes sounds like great Irish music ruined by a bunch of burnt-out assholes. It is equivalent to Janis "burnt-out-druggie" Joplin ruining Kristoffferson's "Bobby McGee" as she did in the States. Would you call me a purist, I guess?….Duke Ellington said it best…."There is good music and there is bad music….the way to tell the difference is to listen."….. Meatall-shit-ca is bad music.That's what I hear when I listen.What a shame, as you say. Reply …Captain Feral? Reply Whisky in the Gyro? That's what I heard instead of whisky in the jar….. Reply I'm surprised so many people are down on this old recording. The Rhythm guitars are phat. Drumming is always good from what's his name as long as he's not talking or thinking of talking. The vocals and phrasing are done modern but still hear the unique lyrics. The lead guitar is all I would say is below par. Suprisingly awkward. Sounds like James H. played it. More importantly than ANYTHING though, this song makes me Feel something. It gets me energized.So it's not horrible at all. Rather, it rocketh imho. Reply FUCK WMG AND SONY AND ALL OTHER CORPS. THAT STEAL FROM THE HUMANS Reply Liked it but not as good as thin lizzy and guys done its there own version Reply That was dumby Reply Fuck Metallica, The Dubliners version is so much better. The Dead version isn't bad either considering how fucked up on acid they all were. Reply SHITTYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Reply If you don't like this version, don't listen to it……… Reply https://soundcloud.com/malaventura-1/whiskey-in-the-jar Reply WWWWOOOOWWWW, I LOVE IT !!! Reply I LOVE THIS VERSION! Best I've heard in a long time! Sure, I like the traditional, but I also like it better than the Thin Lizzy version…I love the energy they put into it too! Reply Dude wtf it was horrible. Can I unhear it? Reply COOL… Reply all time favorite <3 Reply Point completely missed. No subtety, emotion, or feel… Oh wait – its Mettalica. My bad. Reply in my opinion not close to the Dubliners or grateful dead's version Reply Absolute CRAP……………………… Reply Every man and his dog has sung this, I even believe they sing it in pubs in Ireland at drinking-up time! Don't let these comments detract from this very creditable version though. Even musicians as 'far' from Mettalica such as Bill Monroe The Farther of Bluegrass have sung it! However we will have to wait until some bright spark post his version aswell! Reply RUINED Reply Best version by far. Reply Fuckinn average musicians with a huge following……………………………. Reply If I was a member of the CIRA I would not think of this as a bad tune Reply you gotta appreciate their appreciation for this Reply Grateful Dead rehearsed this at Club Front. Check out the So Many Roads box set. but I think Garcia & Grisman played live. at least it's on some disc or discs of theirs. don't recall about live. Reply Better then the original. Reply Musha ring da ma do dum a da.. hey, heyah!. Whack for my daddy ho ah! Whiskey in the jaroh ahh! Reply This is shitty. Not like Jerry and David's. Reply Good song Reply Luv This Ver$ion , As Well As Da Lizzy 1 , But This Really Rocks Hard , Luv Ittttttttt !!!!!!!!!!!!! 😉 😀 WP !!! Reply No kidding bad ass mother fucker James but kick ass song…I tell y'all 😎😎😎 Reply …just a karaoke of Thin Lizzy's version. Not very imaginative… Reply One last comment for the evening. After trying to download one of my most favorite old Mettilica songs, I didn't realize how old this Irish drinking song is, let alone, how many different artists play it. Amazing. I will personally say that I think, I like you guys version the best! Maybe because I'm just an old valley Irish girl who really likes heavy metal and whiskey! ROCK ON METALLICA!
