This isn't terrible, but it isn't great. It's not very noteworthy. Lol'd at the Lana Del Ray comparison.

I think my cover when I was in college was more soulful (and creative).



even if I wasn't as good at singing as I am now.

Everybody should keep posting covers of Dammit.

That's what the threads about, right? Posting tons of videos of nobodies covering Dammit. I dig it.

After hearing all the covers in here I've come to the conclusion that Dammit shouldn't be covered, it isn't that strong of a song to be performed in any way but Blinks original and even then that is only solely for nostalgic purposes.

This was actually exactly what I expected. I knew it wouldn't be an exclusive if it was the usual thing.

It's not bad. If this guy busted this out at a concert or festival, people would go insane.

Can't beat the master, though:

Oh god, this was beautiful...

Thought I had quoted you earlier, but agreed. If things were only considered "borderline classics" because everything is arguable, then we wouldn't be able to really consider anything a classic.

Yeah this dude will never make it on Warped.

People are making this out to be worse than it is. It's nothing special but by no means bad or offensive. Sheesh.

It's not that it's awful; I just don't understand how a person can record a song on an out of tune guitar and be okay with it.

Considering I cover this song at every show I do, i've got a lot of appreciation for it and different interpretations of it

The guitar sounds like it's in some weird tuning or maybe it was just mixed badly. His voice is just a carbon copy of Ben Howard's/Passengers and i've never really been a huge fan of that sound unless it's done right
