meh. I like these guys and love the original song, but the cover wasn't anything special. Felt like the same song only worse.

Essentially echoing everyone above:

Original: One of the best Replacements songs for sure.
This cover: OK.

One of the greatest songs of all time in my opinion, so any cover is gonna be subject to intense scrutiny from me. But this is just not good at all.

Keep in mind though, I can't stand this band. They have always come off to me as a hollow, almost parody-like attempt at the "punk 'n roll" style that has become oh-so-popular of late. Pass.

Yeah this. We Don't Stand a Chance was too good just to be their only record.
