There is a much better quality, in-the-studio version of this Kooky Krap..it's GWAR doing the Billy Ocean song Get Out Of My Dreams (Get Into My Car) with a reprise of The WHO's "Baba O'Riley" but I can't get past the copyright to link it here so this will have to do for now:

First, I must admit I hate this song..always have and probably always will. I have no valid reason as to why either, it's just one of those things where someone (me in this case) dislikes something yet cannot tell you why. That said though, this Loggins & Messina original has been covered to the point of overkill basically with bands like Dr. Hook, Poison, and others all presenting their take on it but none of them compare to awesomely under-appreciated band Y & T and theirs...

I hear ya, MC. If we were to alter this to the Awful instead of Kooky,
I could list lousy covers non-stop, LOL. For instance:

Exactly, here's a GREAT band, doing a cover of a 70's song I never liked in the first place. You may have posted this one earlier...not sure.....

Did you see Post #157 above, MC? It's GWAR's track from this year's visit to the A/V Studios, this Kansas cover is from their stop by there last year. A/V has a pre-determined list of songs on it and as artists stop by they are allowed to pick from the still-available, not yet covered songs on it. Now, here's a cover from the famous, master of flamboyant campy-ness, LOL!

That was actually a fairly successful radio hit, I bet the Commodores laughed all the way to the bank, lol.

True, MC. Faith No More even played it live on the late night talk show circuit a lot at the time too..on Jay Leno, etc. Faith No More were/are one of my own "bucket list" bands but my ever seeing them live is not very promising currently despite their recent reunion tour. They're definitely
1 of at least 5 - 10 bands I've never seen but would love to..Primus being another.

Here's a cover from The Crazy paying homage to The Insane...

Remember the side project band, Mr. Bungle?

I actually have a cassette of theirs, but I don't think they have any cover songs, although I could be wrong.

Man, it's so ironic you mentioned them. I have the 3 Official albums that Mr. Bungle released but I recently got a download of 3 entire demos they did early on prior to those latest releases. Mr. Bungle actually did covers regularly but it's hard to find actual recordings of them..like this for example: It's a cover of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game" with a reprise chorus of The Exploited's "Sex And Violence", LOL!

"Wicked Game/Sex And Violence" - Mr. Bungle
