Erra cover QOTSA

2019-10-11 by ConcubinaryCode | 45 Comments
Erra have presented a cover of Queens of the Stone Age's classic hit, "You Think I Ain't Worth a Dollar, But I Feel Like a Millionaire."

Regarding the song, the band had this to say: "When @SumerianRecords asked us if we wanted to do a cover, our response was “can it be obscure?”, to which they gave an enthusiastic “yes!”. So anyways, here’s our cover of “Millionaire” by Queens of the Stone Age. We had a blast doing this. Enjoy!"

This song will be pressed as a 7" record along with "Eye of God".

They consider a song from an album with over 4,000 ratings on this site to be obscure.

I actually liked this!

That being said, I don't really listen to QotSA much. Fun cover, and I thought JT actually sounded pretty solid on this one.

If a song wasn't released as a single and/or video or wasn't a hit on its own then most people consider it obscure.

hopefully this trend of shitty bands covering good bands goes away. Im pretty sure I heard some horrible nu-metalcore band cover slipknot earlier this year

You're thinking of the new Slipknot album.

Took every quality that made the original so groovy and infectious and flushed it straight down the toilet. Fuck this label.

Yeah. Fuck them for trying to make a career out of playing music and fuck their fans for listening to them and enjoying their music.

How the fuck is a hit album "obscure"

Sputnik's "obscure" =/= general population's "obscure." Most covers done by bands in this genre are huge pop hits, I'd say this is obscure by comparison and that's likely what they meant.

That said, I don't care for this cover

A cover with the right tone but none of the energy or aggression that made the original so good? Way to shoot yourselves in the foot and head, Erra.
