The guitar sounds different, the arrangement has changed and the whole thing just isn't satisfying. What's with the George Lucas treatment? Nobody wants your specialized edition, Cake!
It wasn't quite that much of an overhaul but Marilyn Manson released a slightly different version of "The Beautiful People" on the Lest We Forget collection that isn't nearly as good as the version on Antichrist Superstar. Specifically, they increased some of the ambient noise and the creepy keyboard sound after each collection of verses, before the pre-chorus, was changed to this kind of electronic wailing and it is god awful.

The new version irks the shit out of me every time I hear it.
