"Battle of bands/songs"... kinda

Postby (sowhat) » Fri Mar 21, 2008 9:11 am

Well, not a very original idea even for this forum, but why not give it a try?
Here you go. Two songs. Both from British punk bands. Both covers.
Sex Pistols — "My way"

And the Clash — "Junco partner"

The thing is, you don't have to choose the best of two. You have to choose the worst.
Let's see how it goes.
Cheers.

The lyric:

"Today, I killed a cat, and may I say, not in a shy way"

clinches it for me. This is a descent into (pretty pathetic) self-parody, even in the context of "The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle".

Always loved Sid's take on the old Anka tune.
