The Most Awesomely Bad Pink Floyd Cover Ever

A few weeks back, Rocks Off was utterly enthralled with Roger Waters' rendition of The Wall, the masterpiece he created with his former band, Pink Floyd. Every note was pitch-perfect and the wall was strategically built onstage while the band behind Waters performed the album note for note. In fact, we had two reviews of the show.

And then on the opposite side of the spectrum you have the cover band above doing a vacant cover of "Comfortably Numb" from side three of The Wall. Apparently it was from an Augusta, Ga. breast cancer benefit.

As a commenter on YouTube put it, "A song about needles and anesthesia is always appropriate for a breast cancer awareness event."

That's not all. Here are a few choice YouTube digs:

  • Creed has never sounded better.
  • This is pretty special. Rarely do you get this many musicians together at once who are unfamiliar with 4/4 time.
  • The lead singer is really the drummer, the drummer is really the lead singer, the bassist plays the trumpet, and the guitarist farts in buckets.
  • Mimicking an echo has got to be one of the worst musical crimes one can commit. The whole thing is terrible, but that takes it to a whole other level.

That's right! The lead singer is his own echo effects pedal. Check out 2:51 for the "Ahhhhhh!" part of the song. And the fake British accent, and the....the whole thing is awesome.
