Yeah, I like when bands try something different with a cover tune to make it their own, but sometimes you can overthink it. I was bummed Superchunk passed on it.

They had me in the beginning but the lost me at the break down. It reminded me of a bad lounge act at times or that Will Ferrell bit on SNL where they were they singing duo. Too bad – it had potential too.

props for the deconstruction, but trying to fill Tommy’s bass line with that trumpet kills it…

I liked it at first but the chorus is a disaster. Nice try. Next!

For me it was cool to see Todd Barry, one of my favorite comics, play drums on one of my favorite songs. But I agree – the slow chorus just sounds shitty and forced.

It’s hard to cover the world’s best/ worst cover band.

just terrible. Awful band who display just how crappy they are but deciding to add the slow chorus.

For a better Mats’ “cover,” check out the cover of this month’s Filter magazine:

Like a Partridge Family cover, lacking in any intensity whatsoever…during the verse and then this whacked PROG chorus….horrid IMO.
