    Clever as well as entertaining!

  2. Cool concept!

    I thought I recognized Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson’s distinctive voice on that “Black Widow” track. I did a bit of digging, and sure enough, he appears alongside Maiden guitarist Adrian Smith on the cover, which apparently has appeared on at least two Alice Cooper tribute albums as well. Rounding out the cast of characters is Tommy Aldridge on drums, Tony Franklin on bass, and former Alice Cooper keyboardist Derek Sherinian.

  3. You did such a great job with this! In such a short time too.
    It’s cool you put the RDJ version of River. Now when Avengers come out on blu-ray around Christmas it will give this episode a whole new life.
    Thanks again for doing this show.

    Was listening to this while working as I usually do – and was very surprised when the first I heard was the unmistakenable voice of Per Gessle! Cool cover :)

    And Per Gessle/Nisse Hellberg, The Cardigans and Black Sweden in one show – way to go with the Swede-episode 😉

    There aren’t any covers of or buy the ’70s punk band The Avengers?

    Ah well. Otherwise, excellent show!
