Tune du Jour: “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” – The Proclaimers
THE CLASH of Cover Tunes: Down by Law vs. MxPx vs. The Toy Dolls
California is a garden of Eden, A paradise to live in or see. But believe it or not, You won't find it so hot, If you ain't got the broccoli

If I Get Drunk,
Yes I Know I’m Gonna Be,
I’m Gonna be the Plant that Get’s Drunk Next to You

The Proclaimers:


THE CLASH of Cover Tunes


Down by Law vs. MxPx vs. The Toy Dolls
Down by Law:

There is apparently some heated debate within the punker community as to whether this is, in fact, Down by Law, or Arnie’s favorite band, Me First & The Gimme Gimmes. Anyone got any insights? And I do mean any insights, whether pertinent to this song or whatever. I’m just short on insights, okay?!? In other words, if you’ve got some insights, and again song-related or otherwise would be just fine, then please send them my way. 

Now STAY here and make sure no one leaves …

I just got verification from Down By Law that this, in fact, is their song.


Toy Dolls:


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?!!?
