Well rather obviously gay rights and equality - and have marched in the past or been at or on the march in some part. Not done the full march for years - but taking part or spectating is important, however you do it!

Clash - Police and Thieves (when punk finally got dub right)
Combine Harvester - Wurzels (the original is terrible - yup parodies CAN make crap songs good!)
Hallelujah (and most Cohen actually) - John Cale / Rufus Wainwright / kd lang
Jimi Hendrix - Along the Watchtower (ditto with Dylan)
Grace Jones - Private Life / She's Lost Control
Low -  Transmission (I think, might be a draw on that one)

A few more inspired by zbear:

Devo - Satisfaction
Residents - Kaw-Liga (yes it's a cover!) / Hound Dog / It's a Man's Man's Man's World
Dead Kennedies - Viva Las Vegas
Negativland - U-2 (I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For) (although being anally raped with a rusty dagger and having wire wool and barbed wire thrust  in your ears would be preferable to U2)
Japan - I Second that Emotion
Laibach - Across the Universe / Back in the USSR (that whole album actually)
Slits  - I Heard It Through the Grapevine
Ned's Atomic Dustbin - I've Never Been To Me (motherfuckerrrrrrrr!!!!)
Fatima Mansions - Everything I Do (I Do it for you) - see U2 statement re: Bryan Adams
The Fall - Lost in Music - yes way, you heard right although a close one
Fall - Day in the Life (see comment about U2 for Beat....only joking, although I prefer covers to the originals)
The Fall - Victoria - although I do love the Kinks original
And finally, cos it's a great ending song:
What a Wonderful World - usually I'd say the Ramones (Sid, shut up, not even close lad) but holy13nation just introduced me to the Ministry version, which might trounce it. So a tie.

Oh and the best covers compilation EVER:


I own this on vinyl and CD, well the last is a copy of Kirk's CDs I spent months searching for as a present for him.

It's not bad, better than my middle name. I hate when people use the full form or change it and don't use it as I use it...very few people have that right. Always liked the names Derek, Frederick, Charles, George and Bert but I'm none of those.

Well more like 6 but it was leaving my corporate evil consulting company from hell - PA Consulting, fact fans - and going freelance. Best decision ever (anything involving leaving that place would be a plus in fact).

Yes I do - it's not so much 'deserve a chance' which sounds a bit, well, passive-aggressive...but that everyone is allowed to go off the rails every blue moon. Not if they make a habit of it, but if it's a rarity and no lasting damage done then I'd like to be cool with them again.

The one person this is directed at sadly doesn't read my journal anymore. I wish I knew what was up and why a long-term friendship imploded over something so trivial, even if it was my big mouth that probably did it, it was over expressing my opinion over something minor and really a question of taste. I'd have thought a response of 'Oh Tim, shutup , you just don't like X' - a polite/funny shutup comment between friends or an agreement difference of opinion would be fine. Friends shouldn't have to share all interests, or even agree - not have WW3 launched over it when they say they don't like the look of something :-(

Oh well. Very strange...just means I go back to trying to keep my opinion to myself, and posting silly videos, or filtering everything. The latter wouldn't have worked though, this person was on those filters too. If I've known someone a long time I will speak unguardedly and freely, and that's sometimes rarely where the trouble lies - not in being intentionally bitchy but saying something without filtering that accidentally can cause offence - people at this point shout at the screen 'THEN DON'T SAY IT THEN' - but I'm missing that part of the brain that can differentiate it seems. I can't switch on something I don't have.

And the problem is if I totally self-censor then I'd probably go nuts. Been there, done that, had the part-breakdown.

This is why I live alone, you know? Partly originally other reasons, but I'm now comfortable with not having to worry about stuff like this at home. At some point I will become a hermit or a monk, you just watch.

[Error: unknown template qotd]In a word, no...the content is the same; but the tone comes over differently. I've met people offline and re-iterated exactly the same statement that offended them srsly online, and they've just shrugged and gone 'fair enough'. Hence why I call this the broken medium - half the message gets lost and people sometimes want to find offence as the most benign and pointless shit going.
