Hearing Shatner say ā€œso stick out your can...ā€˜cause Iā€™m the garbage manā€ is...memorable

Bonus ragged buzzy distortion points, love it. Oughta post this in the ā€œnot liking CCR solid state toneā€ thread as an example.

Afraid my anthem will be ruined forever. Not gonna listen, not gonna listenā€¦
honestly, he does it justice, and then some. it works!
surprisingly great version. but you've got to get past the :50 mark, for him to get the obligatory kirk/christopher walker pause out of the way ("I'm the....garbageman":rolleyes:), and for him to find his flow and his inner PSYCHO

Ha I agree, it definitely stays sick.

William Shatner's legacy is going to be both amazing and bewildering. Nobody has yet figured out if this stuff (and the other covers) is serious or a joke.

Learn something new every day. That's some frickin' cool punk/surf/skaterock/something stuff there. Never knew or heard of this WS/Cramps music. I know who WS is though. Silly commercials, but musician too. Mr. Shatner has a whacko sense of humor. Crazy.
