The original was pretty stupid. They made it better.

nahhh the original was awesome...

..theres a punk cover somewhere about though, that was better than the both of them. I cant think who did it though.

Yes because singing about the dawn of music videos is such great material.

Trust me that will never beat the genius that is the song Kitty.

Yes, I know this thread is 2 years old.
I didn't want to start a new thread about the Presidents of the USA.
They're currently one of my favorite bands.
I love the songs: "Naked and Famous", "Lump", "Peaches", "Back Porch", "Stranger", "Kitty", "Volcano" and "Boll Weevil".
And a lot more songs.

A week or two ago, I had a conversation with a friend that went something like this:

"You like The Offspring, right?"
"Yeah, I guess"
"You should hear this song, then"
"What is it?"
"They did a cover of 'Video Killed the Radio Star'"

I immediately thought of various GOD threads.

Not much relevance here, but it's a funny little story.

When I searched for the Presidents of the United States, most of the threads were titled "Video Killed the Radio Star", "I just heard the Offspring's cover of Video Killed Radio Star" or "Did The Offspring really cover Video Killed the Radio Star?"

I really like em. Have seen em 3 times live now and they're so funny on stage. Met them in Sydney last October and they're really nice people.

Man, you're lucky!
I'd love to see them live.

By the way, the video for "Peaches" is genius and hilarious, well it is in my opinion.

Weird Al is gay as fuck. Surprisingly He satired the song as "Gump" from the Movie about a retard. Even more surprising is that the song still sucked and was a very retarded move for both bands.

I Think there good. I Like Peaches, Naked and famous, and Lump.

Hell, yeah. PUSA actually rocks. Their 1995 classic self-titled debut album is the only PUSA album I own, and "Kitty", "Stranger", "Boll Weevil", "Lump", "Peaches", "Dune Buggy", "Body" and "Back Porch" remain my favorite songs on it. I remember back in like '96 or something that I saw a video of Weird Al parodying the "Lump" song. He called his version "Gump". Here's a video of the song (http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TICJUO_ooL0), in case you haven't heard of it.

Didn't mean to bump this thread, but the Presidents of the United States of America are coming back with a new album next month called Kudos to You!. They also just streamed a new song called "Crown Victoria".

My first favorite band before The Offspring, as a 9 year old.

They do some pretty great, entertaining and surprisingly rockin' stuff for so simple a band. Make a lot out of very little instrumentation.

I agree. They were one of my favorite bands back in the day too. I'll never forget the first time I discovered Presidents of the United Sates of America, that was in '95 or '96, just about a year or two after I discovered The Offspring.

"Volcano" still kicks the shit out of pretty much anything ever, too.
