The Original


The Cover Songs Competition


Miracle Legion vs. William Shatner with Dave Davies


Miracle Legion:

William Shatner with Dave Davies:

Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. Only one cover tune will live to play another day and it is your solemn responsibility to decide which one prevails. So tell me … Which Side Are You On?!!?

Also, keep in mind that if you should spontaneously self-actualize while playing a cover then you could – and probably should – nominate it for Top 10 (i.e. “Impeccable”) consideration.



Votes can be cast up to seven days from the day and time of the original post.

Disclaimer: Votes cast from Florida may or may not be counted.

    That Byrds clip features a very rare lineup. Gene Clark quit in ’65 and David Crosby was fired in ’67. Clark then returned for a mere three weeks before quitting a second time. Still photos are rare of this lineup (with Clark and without Crosby), and this is the only video I’ve seen of this lineup.

    Shatner has always been a formidable foe. One must wonder, now that he has added a competent guitarist who is ever going to stop him?

  5. Pete Black says:

    Billy Shat not here. Nay, He conquered again.

    Heh heh heh heh heh, Kirk Boy, ya just kill me…
