Ahh gotcha!

Yeah, that album is hit and miss. Better than many tribute albums I've heard, but that's not really saying much.

Never have really been a fan of Mr. White myself. I understand the appeal of him, but not my cup of tea.

If I'm remembering right, that's the one with the pretty good Sixpence None the Richer cover of Love Is Blindness.

When I first heard it years ago I disliked it, but upon re-listening to it the other day, I actually really like it.

Builds and builds into a fantastic cover of the song.

Love that Killer's version of Ultraviolet and in case it has not been posted, here is If God will send his Angels in a decent live version:

The same here. I never had any contact with the Killers until I heard the cover, fell in love with it and now I dare to say that it just sounds better than the original Ultraviolet version.

I had no idea this existed until seeing your post. 1.5 minutes into it, I'm really digging the cover.

A terrible cover of WOWY by a terrible band. The singer and guitarist have mentioned on several interviews of wanting to be like Bono And The Edge

I rarely listen to cover versions 'cause to me most of the ones I've heard fail to capture that "spark".

The only one that I really like is Garbage version of Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses. Fantastic.
