Is it me or is this Mates of State cover of I Will Dare really not good?

I am the queen of the underground, a bad ungrateful bunny.


  • Neil says:

    different…I like the fast part but not the slow part…it just drags and drags…

  • Some Guy says:

    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.

  • Zook says:

    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.

  • j eastman says:

    Very disappointing.

  • CNote says:

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

  • Todd says:

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

  • jaytaco says:

    I threw up a little.

  • Brendan McLaughlin says:

    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.

  • jaytaco says:

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

  • Chuck says:

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

  • Some Guy says:

    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.
