Weird cover version of song being played in radio

 
  • Weird cover version of song being played in radio

    Whenever LCD Soundsystem - All My Friends comes up in one of my stations, it plays this seriously weird cover version with a guy who is absolutely horrible at singing. Can this be fixed? My ears will thank you.

  • Now removed... sorry about that!

  • Awesome. Thanks!

    So can just anyone upload anything they like onto any lastfm track page?

    Actually, that cover version was by John Cale of The Velvet Underground. The reason it probably appeared was because LCD Soundsystem included the covers by Cale and Franz Ferdinand on the official single release of "All My Friends", which meant that they may have been uploaded on accident by LCD Soundsystem's label(s) alongside the actual LCD Soundsystem recording (although i've never heard the Franz Ferdinand version on the streaming radio, only the LCD Soundsystem and Cale versions).

    There have been a lot of tracks attributed to Led Zeppelin that are nothing more than classic rock covers being played when I listen to Them Crooked Vultures radio. I have 5 of them so far on my banned list, is there a way to report that kind of thing other than the forum? Or is this the right place for such things?

    There are groups :
    http://www.last.fm/group/Wrong+Versions
    &
    http://www.last.fm/group/Boulevard+of+Broken+Streams

    but I get the feeling that the best chance of action is with
    a polite forum post
    with a link to the track
    on a Monday to Thursday
    preferably when Knapster01 is at work ;-)
