Haha! Such a guilty pleasure cover. The video that went along with this song was so gratuitous and silly, too. Well played Sheila!

Afghan Whigs! I was in college playing in a band in CIncinnati in the early 90s, when we were all riding on the wave the Whigs made. Infamous stories about Dulli tossing beer bottles in a washing machine at bar/laundry Sudsy Malones and puting $0.50 in and hitting "spin cycle".

Speaking of minor chords. Don't tell anyone, but if you play any early Beatles song in "drop D" tuning you have a Nirvana song.
