KoRn To Dig Own Grave, Release Covers Album

The things you learn from reading the music press: 1) KoRn played MTV Unplugged, which they then 2) released an album of, and it includes 3) a cover of Radiohead’s “Creep,” which means Thom Yorke will now refuse to play it for a good five years or so. They’re now recording a full album of covers, which already includes a Psychedelic Furs song, a Faith No More song, and because they’re comfortable being a self-parody, “Head Like a Hole.” But wait, they have a wish list:

“Prince’s ‘Erotic City,’ Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘Diary of a Madman’ and Debbie Deb’s ‘Lookout Weekend’ as done by Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam.” Better minds than Davis have tried to get Prince to approve a cover, so that’s not going to happen, but maybe Debbie Deb would relent. With that in mind, what other songs should they cover?
