Can't say it's better than the original, but it is a cool twist on a great song.

Oh, and they're from Texas.

You'll have to give me a list of "bands from Texas" when we meet up.

This pretty much kills it too.

I like Stevie Ray's version best. Sorry Jimi.

I love anything by the late Steve Goodman, and you should listen to him. Go ahead. Do it now.

Okay. That said, David Allan Coe did the definitive cover of this Goodman tune.

I like metal covers of non-metal songs. I like metal covers that are heavier than the original. And I've started to like non-metal covers of metal songs. Here's an example of all three.


First, Miley Cyrus, Djented.

Second, Metallica - downtuned

Third, death metal on the piano. The covering artist changed up the music quite a bit. This ends with a clip of the original song.

Pretty much any song that Bob Dylan wrote and was covered by other artists.

I didn't know for the longest that John Prine co wrote this song.
