Let’s set things straight from the get go…I hate cover bands with a passion. Whether it’s your run of the mill bar cover band or ones that draw big crowds because the band that they cover has been out of tour circulation do the deaths of just about all of the members (Beatles, Grateful Dead). I’ve seen KISS live and they sucked, so why the hell do a want to see a band cover them? I don’t. But back to the point…cover songs. I love when one of my favorite bands pulls out some shitty 80’s song and turns it into something actually worth listening to. See: Reel Big Fish.
