Thrice's Helter Skelter is pretty righteous. Didn't expect it to be on the list though.

A tie for number 2? In my opinion Fiona's version would be number one on this list, and Rufus wouldn't have have even cracked the top 40.

Agreed, I never realized the full power of that song until I heard Dustin scream it. Their cover of I Want You (She's So Heavy) is pretty good too.

Surprised there's no Carpenters on the list - Ticket To Ride?

This, also they're cover of "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" was SOLID.

Thrice really should be up there. I love their cover of Helter Skelter sooo much more than U2's.

I need a new prescription. Definitely read this as 50 cent covers Beatles.

Good list though.

Edit: yes, definitely time for a new prescription.
