Interesting. I'm actually very curious to hear their Cars cover since that's a song I remember growing up.

Brings it back doesn't DB? That song reminds me of a time of less responsibility...when I might not quite have known yet that life isn't fair...I digress.

It's crazy, but I can almost hear the Deftones covering Sade before I can The Cars. I'm interested in these (2) songs most.

Good stuff, need to check this one out!

Agreed, The Cars and Sade covers seems initially the most interesting, but it'll be interesting to hear what The Cure and The Smiths covers will sound like.

Only on vinyl? Now, what's the point in that? Why are The Deftones forcing people to download this album?

I think the most interesting one would be the total oddball one to their style. Skynrds Simple Man! Actually can understand Sade Cure and the Smiths. Need to hear Cars song too. Personal reasons. Um first concert 83.

HR - while I am a fan of Deftones, I have to agree. Not a fan of this cover album after checking it out on Youtube.

Passenger - nice avatar!
