CRAZY TOWN BUTCHERING REFUSED’S “NEW NOISE”
“New Noise” seems to be a popular song to cover; Anthrax (with Dan Nelson) covered it a few months back, and apparently The Used rock it from time to time. Far worse, Crazy Town used to butcher it with regularity. When Refused wrote The Shape of Punk to Come, they most certainly did not mean horrible guitar tone, rubber-band bass, and jocks with their shirts off rapping about winged ex-caterpillars. If Refused had known that bands like Crazy Town would go on to cite them as influences, perhaps they would’ve never formed a band and spared us all.
Oh God, oh God.
