Time for another horribly horrible cover band. Since they're high school kids, you might be inclined to not be so hard on them -- but once you hear them, any feelings of mercy you might have will magically melt away. Here are some kids from Hackley School doing "Smells Like Teen Spirit":
Here's an act that's new to me, but sounds pretty groovy. It's Tony Penultimate, who I really don't know anything about -- but, if you're really motivated to learn more, you can look it up yourself. That's what Teh Intertubes created Google searches, after all.

Nothing can ensure domesticated suburban bliss like popping down to the corner drugstore to pick up some non-prescription downers.
