    This cover is ass. It's just the exact same with female vocals, and not really that good of female vocals

    jakob synn: This cover has more magic in it than unicorns making love. I believe you to be in need of a hug and a second listen.

    Hey eelmon: Never heard of Cherry Bomb before. Pretty cool that they are teenagers, but I wonder…does a band doing a cover preclude ANOTHER band covering the same song? I don't think so. How many times has "Superstition" been covered? Maybe a thousand times. At least. A great song deserves to be honored time & again!

    bjammin: halleluyah! YOU ARE AMAZING!

    jakob synn: The exact same? WOW! That is a very high compliment to say the instrumentation is a as good as the Foo Fighters! I don't think you meant to compliment so I say – BOOYAH.

    @sayYES
    I hear what you're saying. I know Cherry Bomb wasn't the first band to cover Pretender
    by FF and they won't be the last.

    Alan Cross commented, "This is what the Foos sound like with a female vocalist". I was responding to that comment.
    btw
    I would have used Neil Young's, 'Out On The Weekend" as an example before Little Stevie Wonder's, 'Superstition'. I have nothing against Stevie he's a great artist and legend but he's not Canadian, lol.
