    Default Best VH cover tune.

    I certainly don't know all of them, but I'll list a few to vote on and leave the "other" option for those of you who know much more about these things than I do. Bottom line is, what is your favorite VH cover tune, I don't care if it was recorded or not, even if they just played it one time and you think that was just awsome, then let that be your vote. Mine....Won't get fooled again, I thought they just nailed it.

    Ice Cream Man definitely trumps most.

    Can't count out WHATGTG.

    Me, I totally dig Apolitical Blues, but everybody else seems to hate that track.

    I love OU812, but Apolitical Blues is not one of VH's best covers

    I'm going with Summertime Blues. I absolutely love VHs cover of that on the bootlegs I've heard from the Diver Down tour. Dave's vocals especially, great cover IMO.

    I have always dug A Political Blues. Ice Cream Man has to be the winner though.

    You Really Got Me - They just gave that song a major kick in the ass.

    Of the non-recorded I have always liked Summertime Blues and Beer Drinkers, Hell Raisers. I have also heard a sweet version of LaGrange from the club days.

    I've always been partial to Ice Cream Man, myself. I really like A Apolitical Blues also, especially the free Dallas concert version. Ed's solo is white-hot! Big Bad Bill was always the song I used to play to prove to my parents that VH was not just some headbanger band.

    LOL! I'd have to go with this one, as well...

    "20 minutes (late to work)? Shit. Last year I woke up three weeks too late.
    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."
