I just bought this for my boys: video games are a pain in my ample back side, but I thought it might stretch them: Game Music by Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà

Then my small group minister from church turned me onto this http://itun.es/us/34Vnt Enter Sandman is very cool

The Star Spangled Banner. Just sing the song, nobody wants to hear your cute little take on it.

I could not agree more. Everyone should leave everything KK wrote alone, including KK

They play that version a lot on the GRRN Bar stool discussion podcast. It's pretty good.

I dunno man....

It was well done, but *I* personally have trouble with the effort to contemporize the National Anthem. Whether it's some R&B warble-fest or a metal rendition...it's just wrong.

Still, that sounded well done, even if it's not my thing.
I guess that's just it, though, it's the National Anthem....and not any 'one' person's.

Oh, I know how you feel; I have always been like, "leave it alone, and don't try to to do anything to it" , and when somebody sent me that video, I rolled my eyes and thought "Oh great, somebody else trying to mess with the song, it's gonna be awful, and I will be annoyed by the end".....

But I watched it, and I was really impressed....I still like the straight, traditional performance of the song, but I can't help but like this version.

Jimi Hendrix's instrumental version to me is still a classic.
