We Didn't Start The Fire (Billy Joel Cover) By The Forms

Talk about a hard song to cover.

The Forms have outdone themselves this time, covering "We Didn't Start The Fire" by Billy Joel. They have (almost completely) rehabilitated the song with a radical rearrangement... lowering the vocals in the mix, postpunk bass. Dig it.

Guitarist/Vocalist Alex adds that doing covers "provide a chance to do something different from what we usually do." Nice work guys, I never thought I would be posting a cover of this song on my blog. Serious.

Downloadable: "We Didn't Start The Fire (Billy Joel Cover)" from the Guilt By Association Vol. 2 compilation
