Covers: Garbage does Ramones

Here's the thing about covers; to quote a wise man named Keith Malley,
"You can always make a song rock harder". That's what Garbage did when they covered "I Just Wanna Have Something to Do" at a Ramones tribute show. They took a simple mid-tempo punk song, pumped it up to 150 BPM, slapped some electric guitars on it, and made it a different song. A song that rocked harder. Your mileage may vary on whether you like this version better, depending on your tolerance for Shirley Manson, but if you like both Garbage and Ramones, you WILL love this. Just so you know.
