Cover version of the week: "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" by Devo

It's a Cat Power song with someone else's lyrics--nothing resembling the original. What's the point in covering the Stones without really covering them? It annoys me to no end.

Another Miki-approved version of "Satisfaction" comes from Otis Redding:

Again, it's recognizable but Otis puts his own stamp on it.
