AFI covered Ziggy Stardust on during Live Earth. Now, I haven't really got any feelings for AFI one way or the other... well, mostly the "other", but my point is they chose poorly here. How many more indie cred points would they have earned with Joe the Lion?
Rule 1. Don't cover a big time rock star's signature tune. This shows zero creativity and is basically a lose/lose situation.
I can't be arsed to finish out the rest of the rules. That's what I pay you guys for.
