War Of The Covers Head Like A HoleWe apologize for the length of time that we’ve had between posts, but we’re back with another one and hopefully you’ll find this one an interesting one. The last War Of The Covers we had, we saw that Dope was ultimately the winner of that fatal four way match making their version of Rebel Yell by Billy Idol the better one according to you. This week we have a match up that is definitely an interesting match up because it features two bands from two completely different walks of life in the music business covering a band that is the halfway point in the timeline of pop music culture between the two of them. In one corner, you have 80’s new wave legends Devo going up against post hardcore/rock band AFI as both bands attempted to cover the Nine Inch Nails track Head Like A Hole from their legendary album Pretty Hate Machine. In 1996, Devo would take a crack at the track for the 1996 soundtrack to the film Supercop that starred Jackie Chan and also featured eclectic mix of music from bands like No Doubt, the late Dimebag Darrell, and the late 2Pac. In 2006, AFI would record a version of the track for an edition of Decemberunderground that was only released in Europe, Australia, and Japan as well as the soundtrack for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Now only one version of the track can survive and as usual it’s up to you the fans to decide. You have until the next War Of The Covers to decide.
