Who's heard the Darkness' Radiohead cover?

I don't have a link, or the mp3 anymore, but The Darkness covered Radiohead's "Street Spirit." I know this is heresy to most, and I really tend to think so myself, if it wasn't so much fun. That said, I think the song is almost too serious to get the raucous treatment the Darkness give it, but its' worth a listen or two. Waaaay different.

yes, i've heard it. someone posted a thread a while back. it must have been a while back because i downloaded it, and i've since grown very sick of the darkness.

i can't remember what it sounded like.

Metal. Shlock metal. That was the sound. I was not around here when the Darkness exploded, it was during my hiatus. Don't own the Darkness' album, and don't intend to. But at least that way I can still find them amusing. No saturation

there was someone in my building who would angle his/her speakers to the courtyard (for the echo, i assume) so everyone could hear 'i believe in a thing called love' on repeat for hours.

how considerate

one day, after hearing it drown out my music (playing out of a crappy pair of headphones with the sound turned up full blast because my cheap-ass speakers were broken), i walked around the building looking for the room with full intention of finding the person and kicking his/her ass. i got to their room, knocked for about 5 minutes, but no one answered, an RA came by, and put an end to it in a civilized manner (slipped a warning under their door)...so no ass-kicking ensued.

I have this song. It's not like I listen to it everyday, but it's fun every once in a while. I also have Permission to Land, and I still quite enjoy it.

They're not a band I listen to all the time, but they're still good for a smile now and again

It's something everyone should hear at least once.

I've only heard the cd once but there were a couple of songs on it that weren't bad.

Darkness are great. I love it the whole way through actually, and most of their B-sides aren't half bad either (most notably, the beautiful "I love you 5 times").

It's hard to believe that this time last year, I was getting all excited about seeing them in concert. Needless to say, my taste in music has changed considerable since then.
I guess I always admire artists who cover songs from completely different genres. I know Coldplay and Lostprophets have a knack of doing it, and i've always enjoyed hearing their renditions.
