Coming to Cleveland soon is Down, a metal supergroup that's written some of this era's great classic rock songs. (Check out Wednesday's Scene to read more about that.)
This past weekend in New York City, Down performed a faithful cover of Van Halen's "Ain't Talkin' Bout Love" that kicked total ass.
Here's quality video of it, followed by a clip of glory-days Van Halen performing the song, followed by a live version of it by punk-rock godheads the Minutemen.
Each has its own charm. What's your favorite?
And what would it take to get Down to record an album of covers? —D.X. Ferris
