I wonder if they'll attack the use of MP3s of their music like Metallica or will they cultivate it because of their small indie status.

I'm going to have to take your word for it, folktrash. At least until I go back to work on Monday.

The Beatles are popular.

Metallica are popular.

This band is going to blow the top off the charts :)

In a similar vein... GABBA.
Hej Ho, Disco!

Not bad, except for the Metallica parts.

Holy crap, that's funny. It made coffee shoot out of my nose! (which kinda hurt, btw, but it was worth it!)

But did that red background with blue text give anyone else a headache? Where's the ibuprofen?

I hope you people know about Me First and the Gimme Gimmies, who make a specialty out of punked-up covers much in the same vein. Actually, this sort of thing is a sad commentary on the pathetic state of modern day songwriting. Even played as a joke, these old songs blow away anything that's being written today.

Off topic, in Mexico we have a band called Genitallica... We just make fun of everything.

What do you get if you cross Fess Parker with Anthony Quinn?

Claude Akins.

Well, at least rodii, Carol Anne, MrBaliHai and Miguel'll get it...
