  1. Decent list, but nothing from 'Showroom'? Federal Funding was a solid enough song.

  2. Actually, nevermind. Great list. I listened to the tracklist and forgot how much I dug some of these songs.

  3. I'll second the 'Federal Funding' comment. Although with Cake, something good would definitely have been left out either way. I'm also surprised that you went with 'No Phone' over 'Wheels' from Pressure chief. And am I to understand that re-makes are acceptable on your lists?! 'The Guitar Man'? You mean to tell me that you won't accept a great song off of an EP or a B-sides record, but you will accept a remake off of a studio album?!

  4. federal funding was ok, didn't blow us away, but was still good.....as far as covers --

    faith no more - war pigs
    guns n roses - hair of the dog
    ratm - renegades of funk, how i could just kill a man, the ghost of tom joad
    cake - guitar man, i will survive

    if the song is good enough, it's here.....if this stems back to your gnr post, we have since added Lies because we found an updated wiki that listed it as a studio album

  5. I thought Cake's version of "War Pigs" was pretty damn good.

  6. it sure was, i think my favorite part was when the trumpets came back in and throughout the last minute.....good jam

  7. Dame and I were talking just a few days ago about what a cool song 'You Turn The Screws' is. Why didn't that make it? It has a killer bass line and some great trumpet playing.

  8. no specific reason, just didn't make the cut.....i'd give it a 6/10

  9. Guitar Man. God, how did they take a third rate (at best) song and make it great without completely changing it. Genius.

  10. "Guitar Man. God, how did they take a third rate (at best) song and make it great without completely changing it. Genius" -- Radical comment.
