They used to play tons of shows here and were popular with the scene kids at my high school. The staccato shit kind of made me want to puke, and I'm not a fan of screamo, but other than that, it wasn't bad.

I wasn't expecting it to be good at all, so I really don't care. And by the sounds of it, I was right in assuming it'd be arse.

I agree with this. The main vocals weren't that bad, but the way the song was changed around was awful, as were the screaming idiots in the background.

Quite liked the heavy guitar re-do of the verse riff, but what's with the slight screaming in the background of the vocals? What is that there for? It sounded perfectly fine without that, pretty much ruined it for me.

Not a bad cover at all, liked how he did Louise's part in the chorus.

Never heard of this band before, but appreciate the Simpsons reference.

Ok, finally got a listen. It doesn't suck. But the background vocals are very wtf.
Had they not been there, I'd consider a second listen.

After going back and giving it another listen I would actually like it if it wasn't for the "screamy" backing vocals.

I agree, and the guitar sounds good too, but the backing 'vocals'?? That's a real turn off.. Hopefully they will hear the same & delete it..

GEE-ZUS!! they transformed everlong, a true rock classic into a generic radio friendly emo song. MURDER!

on the other hand, I apreciate the effort, I like to see more people liking foo fighters' music so much that they take their time, money and everything to do a cover with their take on it. I think Evergreen Terrace has a good taste on music, they just don't make good music. =P
