This headline should say "Watch Dog Eat Other Dog's 'Vomit' Online". Watching Flyleaf play that song is like getting a handjob from your garbageman. Or your uncle. Horrible, horrible, horrible. Flyleaf should vanish off the face of Earth FAST because I'm sick of this b1tch thinking she can sing. My ears hurt thinking about combining one of the worlds most worthless bands ever (Nirvana) with one of the world's sh**tiest metal bands ever (Flyleaf). I hope that Kurt Cobain spins in his grave so fast, that Courtney Love has to shoot him in the head again just to get him back in his hole. But not before Dave Grohl gets to jack off on his face. I just looked back up and saw that Flyleaf is going to be touring with Skillet. Wow. They should call that tour "Zzzfest".

The sad thing is she can really sing but her lyrics are sewage.

The rest of the band may well be Nirvana (albeit with mental and physical handicaps.).

I have to say I actually like Flyleaf a bit, and that cover wasn't bad until the vocals started... I think it actually helps to NOT know the words to that song.

Actually the average popular song is on average about 3:30 long in the pop genre and this is considered something like pop/rock.

while flyleaf is making millions, you are seating at your computer typing stuff. Flyleaf is good I think that the song could have used a littlte more practice time,though. If life was always good would you have something to complain about?

Ok I'm cool with Flyleaf. Some of their songs I like. BUT THAT WAS HORRIBLE!!!!!! I dunno if she has some nerve issues or something. I mean if anyone thought that sounded good there is something wrong with them or they have no taste in good music. I'm serious. And what in the world? They are going on tour with Skillet?? Sorry to Skillet fans but I could care less about Skillet. Anyways, after watching that performence I will not want to hear the name Flyleaf or Lacey Mosley for a very long time. That was just freakn' the WORST cover I have ever heard.

Dear God, can I get back the 2 minutes and 10 seconds back that spent watching that? I've heard better 12 year old garage bands that sound better than that. Wow guys, make sure you look at the frets playing those super hard barr chords. I know that's probably the most musically complex song you've ever attempted, and do mean "attempted". And no, she's not cute...unless you like the crack whore look. I never had an opinion of Flyleaf before this...now I do. I'd rather do an autopsy blindfolded...
