I don't mean to take away from the original when I say I like this version a lot more. I do believe that Lorde makes fantastic music, but I'm going to say I like this song a little better.
There's an edge to this one that simply doesn't exist in the original. The chorus just kills me everytime I listen to it, the way it kicks in with the screaming and growling guitars just makes me really happy.
As a general rule I don't mind Otep's music at all since she's a female Metal vocalist that goes down the harsh path rather than a prettier way that people seem to typically go. And not just screaming, cause there's plenty of high screaming Metal chicks out there, but she goes with a growling edge too. It's just a rather good song because of it.
