THIS is what a hard rock version would sound like. It's a shame they didn't do it this way. And the production is 10X what Poncia did.

I don't love it, but I suppose it's better than a lot of the IWMFLY covers out there. I don't get why so many people like to cover that tune. Not crazy about the drummer.

In terms of 'uniqueness', I prefer this guy...

Great vocalists for sure. But the version overall is far from unique and apart from being obviously a bit crunchier, it has nothing new.

What if Daria belted this one out on the KISS stage?



Musically pretty cool, too, though it’s sort of a cover of a cover — i hear bits from the DRC cover Dee Snider sang on.

That collaboration was recorded and shot in two different countries, too. Wonders of modern tech for creative endeavours.

In the OP, the brunette kinda sounds like Lee Aaron.

But let’s never forget this “classic”.

So, would it be safe to assume that IWMFLY is their most covered song?
How many different versions are out there?
I’m curious now.

But another cover, nonetheless.

meh. Technically good singer. Annunciation is pretentious. Too many new female singer bands based a little too much on T&A. Not that i don't like that. but over produced over processed drivel IMO..

This is a great version, but to me there are some songs where no cover ever manages to capture the "magic" of the original. IWMFLY is one of these songs. Every cover I've ever heard (including one I did myself) is just missing something.

The other song that I've never heard a good cover of is Ballroom Blitz by the Sweet ... there's something indefinable that no one has ever been able to capture in their covers of these two songs.

It's pretty good - obviously a lot rockier, and having female singers mean they can tackle the middle eight in full voice rather than the falsetto original.

Guitar player needs to calm down a notch or ten though.

If you dig this kind of thing, watch this guy. Playing guitar, percussion, tuning up, tuning down and singing all at the same time. Absolutely incredible.

Very good cover. My only issue is all the lead guitar licks added on top. It feels a bit messy. That and they didn’t have the famous drum fill after the falsetto part. Sacrilege! 😁

You mean kinda like the Alive III version? That’s the ultimate version to me.

👍🏻 I really don't mind it, but know coming from me that's actually more of a complement.

🧐 Someone should snap Daria up for something; as she'd very likely 'work' for almost anything (or project). 💡

Completely amazing. Unbelievably talented. Amazes me that there are people in this world that have a gift like that in spades.
