2012-02-20 by El. Psy. Congroo. | 41 Comments

80 musicians, ranging from Elvis Costello to Bad Religion to Mylie Cyrus, have recorded 75 Bob Dylan cover songs for inclusion on a charity compilation album called Chimes of Freedom, which honors the 50th year anniversary of Amnesty International.
One of those artists, Rise Against, have made a video for their cover of "The Ballad of Hollis Brown."

There are 80 artists on 75 songs. Kesha does one. Silversun Pickups are there. Tom Morello, Sting, Lenny Kravitz.

Sadly, Kesha's cover of Dylan is probably her best song ever. :-/

Should probably just change the article to announce the compilation as a whole. Not just Rise Against.

Flogging Mollys cover is the only one I was interested in, glad it is good.
It's such a random selection of artists on this though.

The rise against cover is unbearable. The disconnect between the lyrics and the mood of the music is painful, and the interview tidbits don't help in any way to make it seem cohesive.

let's see if any of these other ones are any good... gogo band of skulls!

Knopfler's cover is pretty good, as I expected it would be.

Rise's wasn't completely unbearable.

Seconding that this article should be an announcement of the comp rather than Rise Against. Will listen to Flogging Molly and Queens of the Stone Age covers after this.

Can't be that good but I will probably listen to every second of this.

Silverstein is probably the most unlikely artist on the comp.

^More unlikely than Kesha? Really?

Also, confirming the awesomeness of Flogging Molly and QotSAs covers.

Old news but some of the covers are pretty cool, especially Flogging Molly!
Hell, even Miley's song isn't half bad, but I'm only saying that because my balls are currently on loan

Some of these are really good, though, they're the ones that you'd expect to be good.

The Bryan Ferry cover is wonderful IMO. Miley's isn't actually terrible, but then again that's relative as the worst cover definitely belongs to Dave Matthews Band. Worst All Along The Watchtower ever.
