On this week's episode, Peter and Sam are covering...cover songs! For both of our songs,we will be discussing the original as well as the cover, so you get four songs this week. We also discuss how much covers should stay faithful to the original, and why some people prefer the original over the cover and vice versa.
Special shoutout goes to Rise to Offend! They were one of our earliest supporters and encouraged us before we even launched a single episode! Follow them on Facebook and Twitter @RiseToOffend and on Instagram @RiseToOffendOfficial
