to smite them for what they have done.
are they doing on the front of that magazine. ARGH!!!
as We Are Scientists covering 'be my baby'...
Has to be Shocker In Gloomtown by The Breeders - originally by Guided By Voices.
Any GBV fans heard it / agree? They just take all the life out of what is a totally raw punk rock song song. I love Kim Deal but she made a bit of a boo boo with this one.
record is so good. It's on that isn't it? Never heard the original to be fair but I remember liking it actually.
heard We are scientists covering Sigur Ros.
Yeah, you read that right.
strangest cover choice ever.
*not as bad as...
unforgiveable. see also:
jamie cullum doing radiohead

Lenny Kravitz doing "American Woman"
The Cure doing "Foxy Lady"
Dealership doing "Anarchy in the UK"
Matt Pond PA doing "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea"

Any rock song Celine Dion has covered
oohh errrrr foxy lady she dumped me again, oh I'm so depressed I'll have to go and chat up the girl with the big knockers in woolys oooohohhhwooooah
its one thing to do a cover of such a good song
its another to play it exactly the same as the original, but not as good, with irritating fauxpalumbo vocals.
its another altogether to decide that this is worth putting as the first song on your myspace.
Guys, this should come with a warning. If you make it past the yodelling bit, then well done..... however, you will probably be scarred for life.
it was kindof a joke cover, just them messing around in the studio. at the time i don't think it was ever intended to be released, i mean doesn't gibbard get a lot of the words wrong?
Sheryl Crowe cover 'Sweet Child Of Mine'? Or is that just a vision from hell that visited me in a sweaty flu-ridden cheese nightmare?
Yeah that Sheryl Crow cover is pretty horrible. I'm surprised that G 'N' R cleared that.
Now, the BEST cover ever was Vic Reeves doing 'Vienna'...
one of the bonus tracks on the CD reissue.
it was recorded about four years before that came out..
Fall out boy is thee worst one.
Anyone got a gun?
"HAVE NO DOUBT IN YOUR MIND. WHEN IT HITS, IT WILL HIT HARD AND WILL BE RADDER THAN JESUS COMING BACK TO PROVE THAT HE DID ACTUALLY EXSIST IN THE FIRST PLACE."
Lostprophets on the new album.
Has to be.
Radiohead's version of Wonderwall? It lasts like a minute. That was pretty funny. But not bad.
of On a Rope, I put Scream, Dracula, Scream! on full blast to lcear my head of the horror I had just heard. I think its possibly worse than Crazy Town's appauling cover on New Noise.
Vic Reeves, not THe Crow
