So Nickel Creek had this great idea for a cover. They took Billy Joel's worst song, the one that's going to keep him out of heaven, and did a cover of it. They changed the rhythm, melody, tune and chord progression. They also changed the lyrics completely. If only they would also burn all copies of the record, they might have redeemed the song.

Llamo, obscure/unfunny Seinfelch references should be a separate thread. Scroll down and look at the ones nobody is interested in.

Original: The Crickets - I Fought The Law (1959?)


Cover: The Clash- I fought the Law

Most covers aren't better or worse, just different.

This cover of Honky Tonkin' isn't necessarily ''better'' but it is delightfully different.
