Today we’ll be listening to some awesome live versions of artists reinterpreting their own songs.
Flogging Molly – Black Friday Rule
“Hahaha, is funny because Black Friday was the other day!” Yep. Exactly. FM redoes their epic rocker as a slow building epic about David King’s desire to return to Ireland.
The White Stripes – Fell in Love With a Girl
Jack and Meg take their defining garage rock stomper, slow it down, and blues it out. Still awesome.
The Smashing Pumpkins – Disarm
Just as dramatic as the original, and about five times as loud. James Iha’s solo towards the end is still my favorite part.
Weezer – Say It Ain’t So
Taken from the band’s Hootenanny tour a few years back. Bring your own instrument and play along with Weezer? Shit, that would have been cool.
