Dan and Tony discuss covers – starting off with Disturbed’s recent cover of Sound of Silence: Dan mostly focused on trying to take the best screenshot of David Draiman, who has some bad piercings.
Tony lays out his rules for covers:
- There are songs that are off-limits, ie. songs that have been done to death like Hallelujah. Don’t do a cover of Hallelujah.
- Don’t try to prove that you like a band by choosing some obscure song to show that you’re a real fan.
- Don’t cover the Pixies.
Dan and Tony also discuss why bands bother doing covers and when covers go wrong.
