Linkin Park Apparently Thinks Bret Michaels Was The Singer Of Guns N’ Roses

Mope-rockers Linkin Park’s show at Alpine Valley on Saturday night was notable because one of the dudes took a break from whining about the world and his place in it to tell the crowd that people shouldn’t always take themselves so seriously. The band then went on to don blond wigs (??) and perform what may be one of the worst covers of Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child O’ Mine” that I’ve heard in the 21 years since the song was first released. (And I’ve seen my share of GN’R cover bands, so I feel comfortable making this statement.) That guitar solo, oy! Maybe this melodic ignorance is why they have a DJ? [YouTube]
