This is stupid. Why do people think it is okay to cover songs that just came out?

The unspoken rule is the song needs to be at least 10 years old or the band needs to be broken up for at least 5 years. I know some will think this is ridiculous, but it makes sense. Let the band that wrote the song perform it.
ah yes the old 10 year cover rule....no.

I have, but don't search for covers. It is quite obvious not everyone shares my opinion. If I want to hear a song that is relatively new, I will just listen to the original version. To me, the point of a cover song should be for a relatively unknown band to get a live audience involved by playing a classic song that the audience would enjoy that also represents the style of the band performing the cover.

For example, a punk band covering a song by The Misfits.
You don't understand the point of cover songs. Stop going to Bennigans on Wednesday nights and hearing a high school alt-rock band cover some Radiohead song.
