The Cody Show: Castles Burning

So I've really been on this Neil Young kick ... it went into overdrive the last couple of weeks.

Check out my band, The Cody Show's new whisper-rap cover of his "Don't Let it Bring you Down". In my cover, I sample both his version and the ethereal cover of the same by Annie Lennox, though I play all my own instruments and blues-ify it.

I call my version "Castles Burning". It's sorta Neil Young meets hip hop...or something like that.

How great is the first review of my song on that website?:

That is the worst Neil cover ever.

That's just awesome.

Thanks, Thrasher (and thanks for posting it to your site to begin with...)

I sure won't complain about any bad review my music ever gets -- I'll stick with the Gene Simmons theory that, in Rock and Roll -- there's no such thing as bad press.
