Pop-Culturally Illiterate. Please Help.

Who is this "Keane", and why does he insist on doing shitty covers of some of my favorite songs? So far he has defiled She Sells Sanctuary, Under Pressure, and Enjoy the Silence, and I've been unfortunate enough to hear him do it. Is there a petition I can sign, or something? Anything?

I hate when crappy singers copy good songs.. I dont think there is petition old friend... Just another stupid person trying to be famous with someone elses song and lyrics..

I have never heard of this guy!

Speaking of Enjoy the Silence, I recently came across a cover of it done by Lacuna Coil that I really like. It's available on YouTube.

I have heard some of the worst covers ever in the past few years. Folks just don't realize that if they can't do justice to a song, they're better off leaving it alone.

Oh my gawd, Laura, not when I'm eating... ;D

That Lacuna Coil cover is pretty good, thanks!

Once you hit 30 be prepared to hear your music massacred by every unimaginative twat on the planet. :(

There should be Music Police for this kind of thing. (beat cops, heh heh)
