The Sex Pistols are one of my top 15 favorite bands ever. They were the band that got me into punk when I was 8 years old. I present to you two different covers of one of their quintessential songs “Anarchy In The U.K.” I find it fitting to do a cover comparison of this song considering what is going on in the U.K. at the moment. Who do you think did it best?

Cover Thursday: Hotwire (Rolling Stones)- Let’s Spend The Night Together

I’ve mentioned before that there are certain bands that were really good but didn’t get the due and push they needed. Hotwire is one of those bands for sure. On their Japanese release of their debut album The Routine, they included a cover of The Rolling Stones “Let’s Spend The Night Together.” While this isn’t the best cover, it’s a fun version that is very fitting as a good fun summer time song.
