"This one's from the heart" Chrissy Hynde has seen 1st hand the damage done - lost 2 members of the band to drugs

Here's a couple of cool versions of the Peter Gunn theme. Like Rawhide, there's been a lot of covers of this classic TV show theme. Poison Ivy was the guitarist and co-founder of the Cramps, The Silencers are a little known band out of Pittsburg.

Lou Reed doing a song originally performed by the Drifters/Ben E. King (1960), Jay and the Americans (1969). Kind of a creepy sound, but its a Lou Reed arrangement used in a David Lynch film, so it makes perfect sense:

Here's a well known cover, which I was nearly driven to insanity by my younger sister's incessant playing of the original, and then went through my grand children's rediscovery of it.

Yes I was being a CRANK! Seriously though I was interested to see what spin Nirvana put on the song but it only came over as a cover version I might hear down at my local pub being done by a band that only formed a couple of months ago.

Anyway.

Do tribute bands fit in here, since they're all about covers? I'd love to see these guys live.

I was expecting this to be a harsh analysis, but I find it spot on.

Like Mark Foster on Helena Beat, Kellin Quinn has an androgynous vocal here that without the video, I might think was a girl. Emo band Sleeping With Sirens covering Goo Goo Dolls
