Radiohead covers… ::yawn::

I don’t under­stand why Radio­head is con­sid­ered by many to be one of the best rock bands of all time. Since The Bends, I’ve been bored.

Radio­head cov­er of Joy Division/New Order’s “Cer­e­mo­ny”
Sounds excit­ing, but 30 sec­onds of this made me want to hear the orig­i­nal instead. One doesn’t think of Bernard Sumner’s voice as in the same league as Thom Yorke, but he wins.

Radio­head cov­ers the Smiths’ “The Head­mas­ter Rit­u­al”
Here again, a life­less, list­less cov­er. Thom does an uncon­vinc­ing ape of Moz’s mock-tor­tured cadence that just ends up tor­tur­ing us all.

Go ahead and try to con­vince me oth­er­wise…
