The unlikely covers thread.
« on: February 19, 2010, 12:16:19 AM »
I thought I was being wound up when someone at work told me about this, gives a whole new meaning to the term 'redneck'  lol:

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

Well as Nick is on holiday someone has to find the bizzare stuff  lol:

Curiosity got the better of me and I had look on youtube. Trust me, some of their other covers are even stranger

Guns 'n' Roses - Paridise City
The Doors - LA Woman
The Offspring - Pretty Fly for a White Guy
Metallica - Enter Sandman

To name a few.  eeek:

It's better than I ever even knew.  They say that the world was built for two.  Only worth living if somebody is loving you.  Baby now you do.
