They're gonna rip it off

Jack and Meg did it first. Audioslave did it poorly. The Hives tried to do it by rote. The Flaming Lips did it best while simultaneously Moving To Florida. It's been done in Mario Paint and on a ukulele. But the latest people to attempt it? Country legends The Oak Ridge Boys.

I am entirely unsurprised at the raft of covers of this song. In my opinion, it possesses one of the greatest riffs in rock music - right up there with "Layla," "You Really Got Me," "Fire," and all those hoary old classics.

I first heard the studio version of the Flaming Lips' cover on their Late Night Tales mixed CD, which is a pretty amazing collection of songs chosen by the bandmembers to represent their various musical interests. Highly recommended.

Problem with this song is every time it's on the radio while I'm driving, I almost get into an accident as my foot starts to pound up and down on the pedals.

Here's hoping it makes it onto Rock Band at some point (they can let the Bass play the part everyone thinks is bass anyways) so I could at least be justified in my "Hey, Meg, why don't you turn up the difficulty to Medium?" joke I always make when the song is over.*

* Usually to distract my wife who is having conniptions from my poor driving skills from the first part. It rarely works.

Hey FWIW AudioSlave did everything poorly.

I have to politely disagree. Best Vanishing Point tribute EVAR. That being said, Chris Cornell is either really good, or just really awful, there's no middle ground in that guy's career.

The telling point in all the covers, is at the one minute mark when the guitar kicks in with that monster riff. If the person covering the song doesn't pull it off right, the whole song falls flat.

I am really amused by the fact that, thanks to the Oak Ridge Boys, my grandpa and I can totally groove out to the same damn song.

It puts me in mind of Johnny Cash's covers of Rusty Cage and Hurt, or the collaborations between Loretta Lynn and Jack White on Van Lear Rose. Really. I don't know what the younger "country" people are doing these days with the shitty Jesus+America=Yay bullshit they keep spewing*, but the older ones seem to just remember that good music (and good musicians) know(s) no boundaries.

*To be fair I have no idea what the younger slut-pop/boy-band top 40's American Idol bullshit is about either, except that I am certain it sucks just as much as the "New Country".

Seven Nation Army is one of those songs that I'll always remember the first time I heard it. It was that feeling of "Wow, what is that! I must know what that is! I must possess it immediately and listen to it repeatedly." Of course the all-time leader in that regard will always be Smells Like Teen Spirit.

I'm still biased towards the White Stripes original, because I think it's probably the best-executed demonstration of Jack White's minimalist aesthetic of stripping everything down to a three-part arrangement. The Flaming Lips live version certainly rocks, but it's really busy. The vocal bass part of The Oak Ridge Boys just made the whole thing sound cute to my ears, too much like rebranding the song for an aging "adult contemporary" audience.

Sorry, but the Flaming Lips had several albums and an established fan base before their "she don't use jelly" hit, and have had several successful albums since, specifically The Soft Bulletin and Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, both widely critically acclaimed.

Flaming Lips are 100% under the radar, but by no means a one hit wonder band, no idea what to say on the band name, most band names are pretty dumb anymore.

Actually most one-hit-wonders are musicians or groups with an extended history and discography.

I've always taken "one hit wonder" to be somewhere near "no talent hack that got lucky once." Since they have had critical acclaim, and had another hit with "do you realize." That song was in a heavy-rotation Intel commercial for goodness sake. I don't think they fit with either definition. The lips do NBC Commercials now. They would probably be sellouts if they weren't laughing at themselves so hard. Is NBC "a market of fans who like them?"

Anyway, one hit wonder is a term I view as pejorative, so take my objection with a grain of salt if that isn't part of your definition.
posted by jester69 at 10:27 AM on May 1, 2009


This is the best rendition still. :) Primeval, indeed.

jester69, I think you're reading any major dude wrong. They never said FL are a one-hit wonder, just that they got their start with a one-hit-wonderish song and band name. Well I agree that whatever they did before "She Don't Use Jelly" has no bearing on their breakthrough, or their later success for that matter. I sure didn't know them before that single came out, and it definitely came across as a novelty song. So, an unknown band with a silly name and a silly song: definitely seemed like one-hit material at the time. (Here's where I would have linked to the infamous Lips appearance on 90210, but for some unknown, bizarre reason Warner had it yanked from the tubes. So have a 1994 Jon Stewart instead.)

BTW I know that "Jelly" is a bit of a red-haired stepchild among some Lips aficionados, but let me just for the record state that I love the Lips to pieces, that I count Yoshimi among my favourite records, but also that I have a very soft spot indeed for "Jelly".

So AFAIC pointing out how the Lips seemed a one-hit wonder when they were first noticed by a wide audience seems completely warranted to me, and I don't understand why you're tilting at windmills like this.

(1) The Oak Ridge Boys' version wasn't bad, and would have been better if they got rid of the vocal riff replacing the guitar.

(2) If Wikipedia is to be believed, when "the core group that would eventually lead to the Oak Ridge Boys" formed, the oldest current Boy was about four. At least one of the others was not yet born, and the remaining two were born in the same year as the group's formation.

I wonder if, seventy years from now, there's going to be, say, "the Rolling Stones".

(3) I totally agree with the "primeval" comments in this thread. I distinctly remember the first time I heard this song, and immediately thinking "Oh, I love this song. I haven't heard it in a long time. Who is this by again?"

It took me a long time, and many listens, to come to truly believe that it wasn't a cover of... something. Some great, great song from long ago.

FWIW, re megaphone, the oldest Flaming Lips song I can think of with megaphone lyrics on an album is "lightning strikes the postman" off of Clouds taste metallic, published in 1995.

They pretty much do 1 or 2 songs with megaphone at every concert, or at least every concert i've been to, and i've been several times, starting in 2001.

So, other people do the megaphone shtick, its not like any one person has a trademark on it, but at least I can say with certainty their seven nation army cover was not the first time the lips used this method.

I always say I don't like The White Stripes, but then I'll hear song penned by Jack White (either as Stripes, solo, or side project) that just knocks me to the floor. I think it's because there's that big part of him is a blues musician and a big part is a sort of stripped down garage rocker. The songs that call up his inner Robert Johnson really speak to me and the ones that focus on the raw, Stooges-style aesthetic don't do as much.

But when a song hits, I agree that it brings with it that sense that you're listening to something that rose fully formed from the primeval tar pits of rock and you can't imagine a musical landscape where it never existed.
