alpine static, Tuesday, 9 May 2017 19:24 (two months ago) Permalink

i wish we still had separate threads for good and bad covers because there are a lot of terrible covers on this thread but i suspect the people posting them think they are good. can you at least please say if you think the cover you're posting is good or bad so i can make fun of you?

na (NA), Tuesday, 9 May 2017 19:59 (two months ago) Permalink

I think that's only fair.

yeah if a bad cover is posted it gets called

niels, Wednesday, 10 May 2017 05:48 (two months ago) Permalink

Posted the Yachty cover cause it felt noteworthy, still not sure how i feel about it tho. Popular rap being more open to diversity is obviously great but 'homosexuality is wack' Migos being on the record kinda makes the cover a good embodiment of a certain strand of social media wokeness.

Pharmakon showed up in my discover weekly spotify thing a couple of weeks ago. Was a bit of a shock to have that unexpectedly show up on my phone's lock screen.
