The Buzzcocks vs. Elakelaiset vs. R.E.M.

The Buzzcocks:

Fantastic old live footage:

Elakelaiset:

Amazing just how well this song lends itself to the classic traditional Finnish oompah sound!

R.E.M.:

October 31, 1983, R.E.M. performs at the Peppermint Lounge in New York City under the pseudonym It Crawled From The South. The footage is lacking a bit in quality yet still a treat to behold!

Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. It is your solemn responsibility to decide which cover song prevails. In other words … Which Side Are You On?!!?

HHH

Elakelaiset Humppaholisti vs. Siren Six!

Elakelaiset Humppaholisti:

Siren Six!:

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.
