Default Foo Fighters cover contest

Check out the Foo Fighters cover song contest entries in the Arkansas Times (Little Rock).

Google search: arktimes foo vote

(Sorry I cannot post the link, but vote for my band, Opera, covering "This is a call.")

Thanks,
Chris of Opera

Voted for the Everlong cover in the style of Dylan... Way better than whatever the hell This Is A Call was.

I actually liked the Dylan version, it was clever.

I'd take that over a generic straight up attempt to do the one guy with an acoustic guitar take on that song everyday and twice on Sundays

All were bad. Opera's was the worst. Sorry bud. Dylan one was alright. Techno Everlong blows. But This is a Call sounded nothing like the original, and it wasn't like a "creative rendition".

Oh god, these are terrible, I'm sorry, I voted for you though, but it was still terrible. You have a good voice but you ruined a perfect song D: The only one who didn't completely murder the songs was the first one.
