The Who's Can't Explain
Really simple song this time, the Who's Can't Explain:
I watched dozens of covers, and most were not very good. Each had its own issues, but the most common problem: LACK OF ENERGY. Either a lead singer with no presence, or a lead guitar that does not attack the main riff. Here's what I found:
1. Lecompt. Good guitar work and lyrics:
2. PreGeneration. Have to give these kids some props, with A for effort:
3. Boss Martians. Great energy.
4. Made in Rock. Solid.
5. The Rejections. Awesome opening. Another A for effort, just rocking out in the street...wait for the little girl on the bike to ride by!
