It's like listening to The Cure, but with better vocals.

Wow, this rendition of "Love Cats" is particularly awful. (Sorry Ben, whoever you are.)

Can we send in a performance in attempt to match how unfathomnably bad the Cure is in concert?

Would you people quit screw with my adolescence! This is horrible, done before, and not even listenable. Not one of those song was worth firing up.

It is totally for the $ as well. As excerpts of covers he's covered. A quick affiliate link and the nickels will pour in! Or maybe not.

I listened to 2 Lullabys, 2 Just Like Heavens, and a Boys Don't Cry.
I've made myself so sick. I wish I'd stayed asleep today.

This is brilliant.

You forgot to add that the renditions have to be eye-scratchingly, blood howlingly awful.

Oh my. The world did not need a gansta version of Killing an Arab. I can't take it anymore. I am officially no longer a Cure fan. I know this has nothing to do with the band, but I just can't do it anymore.

As bad as these are, they suck less than the Cure's last four albums.

I clicked play on every single one at once.

It's like sticking your head in a blender.

Well, this was enough to send me to the one Cure song (and video) I've ever really liked.
