Scott Weiland Covers Radiohead’s “Let Down”

Scott Weiland definitely wants us to think he’s cool. On his website, the Stone Temple Pilots frontman is selling a digital-only comp that features covers of cool songs, all curated in a weirdly showy way. It’s pretty ballsy to start your cover album with the Stone Roses’ “I Am The Resurrection” and end it with David Bowie’s “Jean Genie,” so credit Weiland with that, anyway. The album also features his Smiths cover and the Stone Temple Pilots’ 2001 cover of the Beatles’ “Revolution”, as well as Weiland’s takes on the Flaming Lips’ “Waiting For Superman,” the New York Dolls’ “Personality Crisis,” and Nirvana’s “Frances Farmer Will Get Her Revenge On Seattle.”

Below, listen to Weiland’s extremely, monumentally karaoke version of Radiohead’s OK Computer classic “Let Down” and check out the album’s tracklist.
