A bunch a drunk hicks down at the local roadhouse/bbq joint on a Saturday night while "Bangus Young" is ripping it up on stage.

they tried to cover them to sound like the originals.

They could have found better songs to cover. 77% of those songs sucked ass the first time around and they did nothing to improve on the originals. I'll pass.

What a horrible list of songs to cover.

Maybe they just suck?

That is such a waste of time. If ur gonna cover then u have to put your own spin on it like CAKE did with I Will Survive and War Pigs.  Hell even Sheryl Crowe with Sweet Child Of Mine.  Not to mention John Cash and of course Hendrix with perhaps the mother of all covers with Watchtower.
