Madonna can be made good simply by removing Madonna. Who knew?



Someone tell James Keenan that a ten year old girl have more massive pipes than his scrawny ass does. Again, who knew?



Same ten year old girl showing James LeBrie that he's a ginormous pansy as well.

Nope, Keenan still sounds like he's whining to me about his day when he sings. It's the entire reason I hardly listen to Tool anymore. I honestly think Tool would be greatly improved if Keenan would just shut the hell up. I get it, Tucker is patterning his life around the story of Keenan, but I honestly can't stand the whiny bastard, so to each their own.

Now, that said, I'm finding the lack of actual covers on this page disturbing.

That's a pretty good cover, but it really only made me want to load up the original. It's like trying to cover "We're not Gonna Take it." You just can't do it better than the original.

While generally considered the original, no cover can come close to the Sinatra version of Fly me to the Moon:

Honestly, there's not much he's covered I don't vastly prefer over the original or any other attempts at a cover. Damn there are some terrible versions of this song.

Gotta agree with Coffee here, Lemmy singing a song about playing cards & gambling sounds more angry than Keenan ever could.

So, we've had covers that are faithful to the original, we've had covers that are innovative and unusual... How about one that inspires sublime comic pathos from its sheer awfulness?

To that end, I give you famous British football player Paul Gascoigne covering a Lindesfarne song.

There are hardly any excesses of the most crazed psychopath that cannot easily be duplicated by a normal kindly family man who just comes in to work every day and has a job to do.

Surely the Cello cannot be metal, right? Right? That fucking big wooden shitbuicut can't be fucking metal. I mean, serio...

So I stare wistfully at the Lightning for a couple of minutes. Two missiles, sharply raked razor-thin wings, a huge, pregnant belly full of fuel, and the two screamingly powerful engines that once rammed it from a cold start to a thousand miles per hour in under a minute. Life would be so much easier if our adverseries could be dealt with by supersonic death on wings - but alas, Human resources aren't so easily defeated.

But few things are. Especially when Pat's playing it...

Seriously, if you ever get a chance to see Horrorpops live drop whatever the fuck you are doing and go see them. Even if it's your wife giving birth to your first child, it's less important to your growth as a person than seeing Patrica Day spin a bass that's twice her size.

A couple old ones:



This one always sits with me because Nirvana fans, at least when I was growing up, were the worst of the worst. I finally caved when I found a song of Kobain's I could enjoy outside of a "this doesn't move me in one way or the other" sort of way (much like I feel about Nickelback and bands of that nature)... which was obviously because he didn't write it.


This one is cheating because no one cared about the original. But I'm posting it because Cash singing about flying a starship is worth listening to at least once in your life.

Man, I need to find some new music to listen to, but everything on the radio is so damned.... happy lately, and that doesn't jive with my 90s "life is terrible" grunge rock bullshit I had to grow up with.

Pharrel Williams, guy writes some of the catchiest dmn hooks in music, and most of his stuff is just plain feel-good music you could easily plan the mother of all roadtrips around. Yeah, I really dig his stuff. Especially this one song, maybe y'all heard it?



If this pops up on my radio on the way to work I can rest assured it'll be a good day. It's just that positive and uplifting a jingle. That said, the METAL will not be denied...



Holyshit, that drummer is sicker than an Ebloa patient, yo. Someone better grab a hammer, because he fucking nailed it!
