By chance, we've got many North American bands covering British bands tonight. Two covers each of songs by Queen, Depeche Mode and The Rolling Stones

9:41 PM, June 17th, 2023
enjoying choices of bands inspiring metal, yet some of the covers could have been uglier and sinister

9:49 PM, June 17th, 2023
Napalm Dan
Thanks to Lee for showing me that Macabre cover! And thanks for tuning in Mike! I am all for the ugly and sinister. Not always easy to find the super abrasive covers.

Love the bleeps, classic show !
