Does not even get close to the original.

No, at least you would not have stumbled with the words.

I have that same aftertaste.

It's an alright cover. I give those young kids props for choosing such a bold song to cover, most likely in front of a clueless audience.

The instrumentation is fine, but that girl is just...horrible.

my exact thoughts.

I like it. I like anyone covering sonic youth. especially in front of a captive audience. the chick was not bad at all either, fuck it. it is a chaotic song. who care sif she messed up?

she should have shown her pussy though/

andrei 03.12.2008 11:16 AM

I think it's a decent performance. IMO, a cover that sounds like the original is pointless...

Yeah she was pretty cute, that would have been a nice bonus

deflinus 03.12.2008 12:14 PM

ha! shes a better singer than kim at least. i thought it wasnt horrible. they're just covering the song. right on!

uhler 03.12.2008 12:25 PM

it's not that bad. i wish the instruments were louder. i think if they practiced the song more, it would have been better and maybe she would've remembered the words and not stumbled so much.

samuel 03.12.2008 02:05 PM

yeah, I don't think it was "god...awful"
it was fine

k-krack 03.12.2008 02:21 PM

Wasn't really as bad as you seem to think.
The vocals were a bit wishy-washy, namely the "making the nature scenenenenNEEEEEEEEEEEEE," but the music was pretty well done.

Rob Instigator 03.12.2008 02:29 PM

first cover of this song I have ever heard

nicfit 03.12.2008 03:20 PM

I covered it too. But I'm too shy to expose myself.
btw, at the start of the vid there's a caption "concert practice" , guess that explains why the singer is not much ready to sing it properly. it's not that bad, and they must be pretty young too, wich is a plus. I say keep on rockin in the free world.

Rob Instigator 03.12.2008 03:42 PM

keep on rockin'!

sonic life!

Haha! My band once covered 100% at a gig. We were so wasted I spent most of the time jumping against the wall and rolling around o the floor molesting a drumstick... so it could be worse.

Needless to say, we cleared the room of any skinny jean waring kids... the few who were left loved us tho!

Just do what you gotta do...

SpectralJulianIsNotDead 03.12.2008 04:02 PM

I did an incredibly noisey version of inhuman once. It was probably awful.
