Action Pact! Featuring Steve Drewett:

Zeltinger:

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.

    I’ve been a Ramones fan for years and years. Rockaway Beach has to be one of their best songs ever. Both of these cover versions are lacking. Can’t stand the vocals on the Action Pact version. Zeltinger does a slightly better version… it’s a little heavy on drums and bass and not enough crunchy guitar, but it’ll do.

    Hmmm, I thought both versions were very good. But Zeltinger frenzied pace and German vocals rule the day. (Sorry Jonathan, in this case it does not have to be Action Pact!).
