SOURCE: This is a penitential cover with no specific scientific source. It’s by The Hanson Brothers, who are not these savage hockey players nor this bubblegum pop band, but some kind of combination of the two.
ABSTRACT: This cover involves no hockey, no Ramones and no unnecessary roughness (the only roughness is entirely necessary). It does, however, involve the excesses of love and the passion for the mechanical implied by the original song. I’m not sure how it wound up as a torch song, really – it’s not exactly what I set out to do, really. I just wanted to follow the emotional lead of the lyrics.
Please enjoy it… like you were programmed to.
