Okay, I'm only posting this because Grand Funk Railroad came up in our recent discussion's about Carly Rae Jepsen and Colbie Caillat, but I've been meaning to get the following sentiments off my chest for what seems like years.
But first -- the aforementioned Grand Funk Railroad. Covering "Gimme Shelter" in 1971.
Seriously -- listen to this under the headphones. And then demand combat pay for the experience.
And before anybody makes the point, I will concede that once Todd Rundgren got his hands on these clowns, they became listenable and/or entertaining.
In small doses.
But if you like the power trio version, there's no hope for you. None.
