See what you think of this cover of Pink Floyd’s “Have A Cigar”

Cover versions of songs can produce a wide range of results. Sometimes a cover can be superior and/or more creative to the original, while other times they can be a misfire that doesn’t do the original version justice. Then there are other times where they stray so far from the original that it’s hard to know what to think.

This version of Pink Floyd’s “Have A Cigar” from punk band Fidlar, which was released today, might fall into the third category. It’s probably quite a bit different from other Pink Floyd covers you’ve heard — a guitar-heavy version with an electronic twist that changes some lyrics here and there, notably the change of “Gravy Train” to “Streaming Train”.
