Quite right hoochmonkey9.I think they were more than a bit drunk!Considering dead letter office is a collection of b-sides there is some genuine nuggets to be found on it.............

Rape me - Richard Cheese (in very bad taste he opens by saying 'this ones for the ladies...')

I just can't get you out of my head - Flaming Lips

Star Wars - Bill Murray (technically his own lyrics to the tune of Star Wars but very funny none the less)

Killing Moon - Pavement

If I were a rich man - Magnetic Fields

Hallejujah - John Cale

What a wonderful world - Nick Cave and Flaming Lips (so bad it's good, or is it?!!)

Was in an east Vancouver book store yesterday and recognized The Saints' "I'm Stranded" being done techno/lounge style. Looked at the CD by the cash register but didn't see who did that version and I didn't ask. A number of years ago I remember hearing a lounge version of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Again, no clue as to who did it.

Good god man, a techno version of I'm Stranded? What a disgrace :mad:

Anyone here remember Eric Burdon's version of Roy Orbison's Ring of Fire. Brilliant
I'm sure there's others that will come to me, but what stands out right now is Frank Zappa doing a blistering rendition of the Allman Bros. "Whipping Post"
Pink Houses- Avail
Real Love- The singer from Soul Coughing
Where did you sleep last night?- Nirvana
Melt with You- Stretch Armstrong
Sweet Days- Snuff
