I just meant that in the sense that when you cover Brand New, if you don't nail it, then it just sucks haha.
agreed

Pretty good idea for some free publicity haha

The cover's all right... sounds similar to the way BN would play it live (half-rehearsed/half-jammed instrumentals, vocals that are hit-or-miss at best), which I guess is both good and bad for them?
i think the idea was to re-create jesse lacey's ambiance on stage. don't think they were trying to make it their "own," that would almost be blasphemous

Yeah, I wasn't knocking them for emulating the band or anything, just observing that they were doing it pretty well.

As for it being blasphemous for a band to attempt a unique take on a BN song, I hope we're far enough along in the band's career that that will stop being the prevailing attitude soon. I get the feeling that a lot of fans who got in on the ground floor with YFW are probably over the "BN are scene royalty" idea - at least I definitely am.
i can see your point in some respects, but degausser is sort of a cult-classic. i wouldn't bunch all brand new songs into that category, but there definitely are a select few that should be handled with kid gloves.
