Episode 21: Everyone who is in a band is in a band because of the Pixies

On covers

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:

  1. There are songs that are off-limits, ie. songs that have been done to death like Hallelujah. Don’t do a cover of Hallelujah.
  2. Don’t try to prove that you like a band by choosing some obscure song to show that you’re a real fan.
  3. Don’t cover the Pixies.

Dan and Tony also discuss why bands bother doing covers and when covers go wrong.

Listen to the Lexies.
