The last battle of the bands I saw, was in High School.
I remember the 1st band played "Friday I'm in love" by the Cure, and then "Jeremy" by PearlJam.
The second band played "Brown eyed girl" by Van Morrison, and then "Cat's in the cradle" by Harry Chapin/Cat Stevens/Ugly kid joe.
As I believe its utterly impossible to imitate Robert Smith or Eddie Vedder, the first band bombed....literally. People started throwing stuff at them. Their set ended with "Jeremy spoke in...class......@#$# you," as they dodged donut holes.
I'm resurrecting my High School experience with:
The Youtube battle of the bands.
I haven't laughed this hard in a while. Please watch both competitors, and vote for the winner at the bottom of the post.
Today's first competitor is a band singing "I wanna love you tender." As I cannot pronounce the name of the band, I will leave that for you to decide.
Watch away...and stay till the end...it's definitely worth it.
Our second competitor is Jan Teri singing "Losing you."
Yet again...be patient for the whole thing...United 7.
And to wash away the horse-crap from your musical palette, I give you one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite bands.
