    Some Cool Covers:

    – Original a song by Jefferson Airplane

    Smashing Pumpkins – Soul Power
    – The Pumpkins goes Soul

    Bonnie Prince Billy – Here Today, Gone Tomorrow
    – A Song from The Ramones




    Good call Allison on Husker and Social D.!
    Husker`s version of `Eight miles high`is amazing! When Bob starts screaming toward the end it`s just amazing!
    Social D`s version of `under my thumb` is awesome!they recorded in the early days,that`s on a compilation and on "white light/heat/trash" as the unlisted track at the end as well as on their live at the roxy album
    Which one do you like?I Have`nt heard the early one but between the other 2,the white light one rips!
    This afternoon I was checking out a Yo La Tengo site with a ton of mp3`s,mostly live stuff and remember I mentioned `rocks off` by the stones?Yo La Tengo covered it live!
    but I could`nt get it to work!,the other songs seem to be working so I guess it`s just that one,I`ll try another day.If you want to check it out it`s at Sunsquashed.com
    there`s alot of cover songs;some Bowie,Kinks,Grateful dead,Pavement(with Malkmus),Velvets,Fleetwood Mac,etc.

    Spaceboy your right that Ramones cover you put up awhile ago is very cool. Damned did a Jefferson Airplane tune as well, White Rabbit…pretty cool.

    Hey Salamiguy,

    Forgot to answer your original question about Under My Thumb. We have a 45/single 1945 with Under My Thumb on it. As well the compilation deal..gotta love Social Distortion. Not completely sold on the solo Mike Ness though, maybe will give it another spin [img]images/smiles/converted/cwm12.gif[/img]




    The first Mike Ness album I don`t have but heard played in the music store,why would he team up with Brian Seltzer and Springsteen?
    I do have that 2nd Ness album of old country tunes,it`s awesome!Best cover of Marty Robbins`big iron` I ever heard;some lame new country guy covered it a few years ago and it sucked!Mike just kicks ass on it!Another good tune is the Carter Family`s`Wildwood flower`
    where Mike`s distorted punk chords mix with a banjo and pedal steel!My Mom met the surviving Carter Family in the 60`s!The Carter`s if you did`nt know was around on the 20`s and 30`s and wrote the song`No depression`which Uncle Tupelo covered and named the Alt country scene no depression.
    My Mom also met the Ventures in the 60`s!
    I`m sure Man or astroman would find that cool!
    Cool Mom!



    Here`s some more cool cover songs:
    Superchunk-Born To Run(Bruce Springsteen)(you can check out this live mp3 at mp3.Palukaville.net;they also have some live material from BTS,Modest Mouse,etc.)
    Scrawl-Public Image(Public Image LTD)
    Pavement-Killing Moon(Echo and the Bunnymen)
    -The Classical(The Fall)
    Geraldine Fibbers-You doo right(Can)
    Faith Healers-Mother Sky(Can)
    Lagwagon-Brown Eyed Girl(Van Morrison)
    Polvo-Mexican Radio(Wall Of Voodoo)
    Red Red Meat-Wishing(A Flock Of Seagulls)
    Leatherface-Message in a bottle(The Police)
    Gameface-Time After Time(Cyndi Lauper)
    Pixies-Head On(Jesus and Mary Chain)
    PJ Harvey-Highway 61 Revisted(Bob Dylan)
    Sonic Youth-Computer Age(Neil Young)
    Unrest-So You want to be a Rock And Roll Star(Byrds)
    Versus-24 Hours(Joy Division)
    Flop-Big Sky(Kinks)

    I think that`s enough for now;with my last list and this one I think I came up with 60 songs!




    Just have a couple more to add..check out Knights in White Satin and Paranoid by The Dickies…could change your life [img]images/smiles/converted/rolleyes.gif[/img]


    ps salamiguy…cool mom definitely…meets the Ventures…gotta love that [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img]



    Heard The Dickies cover `Eve of Destruction`
    before;that was cool.



    Just a couple more..

    Red Hot Chili Peppers do a wicked version of Search & Destroy by The Stooges think this on a Beavis & Butthead disc

    Ramones do a pretty cool version of Spiderman…on some saturday morning cartoon compilation…very odd but cool…no one croons like Joey did… [img]images/smiles/converted/frown.gif[/img]
