Okay, so I couldn't resist following up the previous post with a horrifically bad cover of "Don't Stop Believin'." I realize I might be opening myself up to harsh criticism by talking shit about this particular version; for some inexplicable reason, people frigging love Rock of Ages and I'm ready for the backlash. However, that won't stop me--this cover SUCKS. The first time I heard it, I wanted to throttle the entire cast and then I wanted Journey and Steve Perry to unite just briefly to throttle it again. I don't care if the characters are supposed to sing like they're tone-deaf; that's still no excuse for butchering the song. Geez, I think I'd rather hear nails scraping against a chalkboard for ten straight minutes than this big pile of poop.
Edit: I just watched it again. It's like a trainwreck I can't stop watching. What is up with that blonde, big-haired guy and his incoherent rambling, or scatting or whatever the hell it was? Can I single him out for an extra punch in the face? Good grief.
