Some of the comments are comedy gold. I like the one that states, "Fun fact: he recorded this while trying to pass a kidney stone" :lol:

There was a trend a few years ago to take almost any song and cover it by singing it slowly and slightly quieter than the original, I really hated that trend.
e.g:

Kurt Cobain, in his current state, sounds better.

One of the first punk covers I heard was Less Than Jake's "We Go Together" ... questioning what the hell "changity chang cha bob" means made and still makes me smile. :)

On the flip side, there's soft, sombre piano-driven cover of Canadian punk band Gob's (domestic) hit I Hear You Calling ...

Jesus Christ! After 60 seconds of that I am not going to click on any others. Andy Kaufman levels of comedic genius or...... what? I don’t know how to express what I’m thinking. I need to leave now.

This, apparently, was the result of a bet between two producers for the worst song they could get into the charts. You'd have to agree that - on those terms - they absolutely nailed it.

It's a sort of cover/adaptation/homage/absolute murdering of Mah nà mah nà by Piero Umiliani, or perhaps they're covering the muppets version. No-one is sure.

:lol: ... it definitely made me say something like "Wait, what? No!", just in the opposite way Cash's "Hurt" did.

Truthfully, I love it!
