  1. looks like the reddit alien

  2. I enjoyed the NIN cover.

    But then again I love the sound of Trent breathing. *shrug*

  3. Another +1 for the Zoo Station cover…love when it locks into the rhythm for the last few minutes.

  4. The NIN cover is extremely radical…

    … Radical in a good way, of course; not annoying lesbian-feminist radical.

  5. For whatever reason I first read that horribly blurred cover as “Wu-Tang Baby”

    False alarm.

  6. Good God the killers cover is awful! And that may be my favorite song on the original album!
