i'm not gonna try and argue that the original is some sort of untouchable classic (although i do like it), but this cover is complete dogshit. despite all the hype, i've somehow managed to not hear a single bit of vampire weekend's music, and frankly, if it's anything like what they've done to this song, i'd be inclined to keep it that way...

I like Vampire Weekend a lot, but this song just doesn't fit well with their sound. Definitely will not be keeping it on my computer.

i liked it. but im weird i guess.

would you rather them cover something comfortably in their range?

cmon...

Cover's are homages not forceful butcherings...unless it's uninspired.

i cant say that for all covers, but this one was interesting.

Nearly as bad As Sign's cover of Run To The Hills.

It like it. I don't listen to Rancid, but I agree it with IRAI that this is an homage. For VW it kind of comes out of left field, and that is what makes it intriguing and respectable, because it further garners VW with the reputation of making fun music that take chances and shows they don't give a shit about critics who don't like their sound or image.

Really. Its not like we dont have enough "lol were gonna cover a pop song" covers. At least this was a little different.

But I guess they should have just been unoriginal and covered kelly clarkson, or britney spears, then everyone would be happy.

I saw Rancid this summer and they put on a fantastic show. I really like Vampire Weekend and I really want to like this cover, but it's just VW plugging in their style into a punk classic. Didn't really do anything for me.
