Modcast #396: They Got You Covered

I'm baaaaaack. And with a very cool show of very cool covers. Everybody loves a good cover song. I've got a baker's dozen of them for you that showcase some of the best. What makes a good cover? Everybody has a different answer, but for me it's when a band surprises you somehow. Either with an atypical but spot on tribute, like The Ramones did on occasion, or when they simply outshine the original with a unique twist of some sort. Whatever it is that makes a good cover we all know one when we hear one, and you're going to hear a bunch on this modcast.

D'oh! Now with a working link!
