“Free markets will not prevail without unfettered competition among cover songs.” – Milton Friedbyrd

Go Your Own Way was released in 1977 on Fleetwood Mac’s album,Rumours. Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks had been bickering big-time, growing ever tired of each other and not much caring to hide it any longer. Hence the “genius” of the song. Go Your Own Way was an instant hit, rising to number ten on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making it the band’s first top-ten hit. It has endured as one of Fleetwood Mac’s most popular songs. Go Your Own Way ranked number 120 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and is on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list. 

I do not care for this song at all, which is not surprising considering I do not care for Fleetwood Mac at all. However, Go Your Own Way does make for some great punk, cover fodder.

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?!!?
