Not bad. Vocals remind me of a certain red-headed singer from a certain rock band that rhymes with flairamore.

Sounds alright, but I don't like how she emphasizes the word "fuck" in the chorus. Reminds me of little kids discovering vulgarity for the first time and being impressed by their own ability to include it in sentences.

This is one of those instances where a cover is disrespectful to the original artist.

Wish people would cover other songs of theirs. You know, not just the "Oh, look, we're controversial" song.

Not a fan of this cover, probably because of the vocals and overstretching emphasis on "fuck."

I mean...if you're just going to cover it in the same style as the original artist and not your own, there's no point in doing a cover...

I think its exactly what SIS covering NIN should sound like.

Is this Dr. Phil's son's band? If so I'll pass. They suck.

Yup.

Let's not go using that NIN icon unless something truly merits it.

Isn't Hundred Handed the label that belongs to Coheed & Cambria?
