The Worst Cover Songs Ever, Appendix I
Here are 15 more cover songs considered for inclusion in "The Worst Cover Songs Ever" that did not make the cut for various reasons, ranging from competence to tunefulness. Some are just too traditionally punk (Dirt Shit), rather than out to lunch; others veer toward bar-band nightmarishness (Youth In Asia). Actually Lili Z.'s homemade cover of Rondos stands out for fulfilling Shit-Fi criteria for awesomeness, with its pointed antisexist lyrics directed at her own fans, while also fulfilling the usual (shall I say bourgeois?) criteria. Beyond that, this tune deserves a mention because I was able to meet Lili in Rotterdam at the Rondos 30th anniversary retrospective party earlier this year, and we had a blast. Anyway, all of these covers are worth a listen as well, but I'll let you do the detective work to find them.
