Nirvana had a bunch of awesome covers on unplugged, particularly lake of fire, plateau, where did you sleep last night, and the man who sold the world.
Yeah, you were right about me, but can I get myself out from underneath this guilt that will crush me? in the choir, I saw our sad Messiah he was bored and tired of my laments

Good choice. I love Muse's song supermassive blackout, or whatever it is called. Makes me frisky and close to ripping off the person's clothing next to me.

yeah, its THAT GOOD.


I stand by my notion of TWS having a ton load of awesome covers.

Recently I have been listening to nonstop their collaborative song with that wonderful lady, Holly gighlithi or whatever her last name is.

Killer song.

Its stellar for the fact Meg sings in it.
I felt like a race horse in a world without racetracks or a champion college footballer suddenly confronted by Wall Street and a business suit, his days of glory shrunk to a little gold cup on his mantel with a date engraved on it like a tombstone.

Rofl, which one? They have a song called Supermassive Blackhole and one called Blackout. I'd have to say I'm more partial to Blackout. They almost sound Radiohead-esque in that song.

That's badass, I'm not sure what to think of her voice yet since I've only heard it on Cold, Cold Night before.

Almost but not quite. Thom can't exactly be duplicated so easily. Just him, anyone can play with him and make 'radiohead'. but that's irrelevant, i suppose. And, ohhhh, i just figured out the name of the song. Supppermassive blackhole. I listened to it again today and realized inebriation DOES, in fact, impair better judgment.

:yawn: THE MORE YOU KNOW.



Anywho, yeah, I was just wandering aimlessly around youtube one day and stumbled upon (good site haha) the song. Curiosity got me to delve a bit further but yeah, TWS is pretty legit with the covers.

I'm surprised nobody mentioned Tori Amos doing Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana.
It sucked.
Decisions to decisions are made and not bought, but I thought this wouldn't hurt a lot. I guess not.
