Talk:One More Parade

From This Might Be A Wiki

Does this song sound like The Arrogant Worms to anyone but me? Not just the music, but even Linny's voice is a perfect match.


A quote from Cover Me's article about Rubaiyat (Elektra's 40th Anniversary):

Scuttlebutt has it that They Might Be Giants had a cover of Queen’s “We Will Rock You” all ready to go, but Metallica wanted to cover “Stone Cold Crazy” and they didn’t want any other Queen covers getting in their way. The Johns graciously stepped aside and took a shot at Phil Ochs’ anitwar song “One More Parade” instead. The result was nowhere near as goofy as casual fans may have been expecting, but it showed that TMBG had more than one kind of arrow in their quiver.

Anyone heard this? I've asked Flansburgh via the Tumblr, but in the meantime, anyone know anything about this? - Rev. Syung Myung Me (talk) 01:54, 19 April 2014 (EDT)

Yes, I do recall hearing that story a while ago. I wish we could hear the We Will Rock You cover, though... -OldpineboxTalk 16:47, 19 April 2014 (EDT)
