    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.

    Remember seeing the trailer for Social Network the first time...thinking, "this movie looks horrible"(I ended up loving it)...and, "whoa, at the cover"

    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.

    On the subject of New Wave covers, I heard this at the gym yesterday and it took me a minute to remember that 311 wasn't the original artist. They do a version of this song that fits them very well imo
