We loooves covers here at GT, but they are a mixed bag. They come in a few flavors:

- Vanilla... Good, but not as good as the original... just ok.
- Pickle with Organic Lube Swirl... So fucking AWFUL, you contemplate violence toward the covering band.
- Phish Food®... The original song sucked... but this is amazing.
- Dave Matthews Band® Magic Brownies™... The original song sucked... but this is sucks even worse.
- Nocciola Gelato... This is a cover? It sounds nothing like the original.
- Mika Miko... This is awesome and totally captures the spirit of the original.
