    Cover of Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone" by Butch Walker. Her version is ok, but I will take his on a shitty cell phone camera...

    And because I never really liked Stevie Nicks, a moderately hilarious cover of "Leather and Lace,"

    I don't agree with your assessment of Nicks, but Grohl is my favorite musician of all-time, and I'll like anything he injects his sweet, awesome talent into.(some homo)

    Like his voice, but I hate when people cover songs like this.

    Just because he sings it better doesn't make the words any less ridiculous.

    Nice. They toured like crazy last year all over the world, but I'm still waiting them to come within at least a few hours of Cleveland. I'm also wondering if they're going to do some new material. I read somewhere that they were going to, but haven't seen anything about it in a while.
