Skittering

Dillinger Escape Plan: Come to Daddy
The Gossip: Are U That Somebody
Heros Severum: Get Yr Freak On

Three innovative songs. Three iconic music videos. Three remakes by rock bands whose drummers do a remarkable job of emulating the complex patterns of drum machines. Give the drummers some!

Hey there fellow respected bloggers! I'm wondering if you (or your readers) would be interested in participating in a little survey I'm taking: I'm trying to get a list of the best covers of the 2000s. If you send me a list of your top 10, I'll compile the results and you might win a free CD/DVD! I hope you'll come check it out, and any exposure on your blog to get your readers to come join in would be great.

I did this a while back with the best indie records of all time--some of you may remember that--and got over 100 responses. I'm looking for similar results.

Thanks.

There is only one great cover: "Eight Miles High" by Husker Du. The rest are paste.

Thanks for stopping by & the heads-up on The Fugs.
Since you cited "Eight Miles High" by Husher Dü, which came out in 1984, I guess you were just saying your favorite cover, not the best cover of the 2000's as ekko was inquiring about, I'd have to add my all time favorite as "It's a Man's World" by The Residents.
Just my opinion, though.
Thanks again for the visit & comment.
