Never heard of Ceremony, "Kiss Off" is my favorite Violent Femmes song....

EDIT: The cover was meh.. They did their own interpretation, but it's clear that they didn't have the confidence or ambition to really attack it. The "verbal" parts, where Gordon seems to be addressing the listener individually, definitely lack that personal vibe. It's an okay cover, but I wouldn't listen to it again.

Maybe it's my computer but I couldn't hear the bass at all, how do you cover the violent femmes with the bass so low?
