The Darkness "Street Spirit (Fade Out)" (Radiohead cover)
On August 21, tight pants-wearing UK cock rockers the Darkness will issue their comeback album Hot Cakes, and while we've already got a taste of the new material via leaks like "Every Inch of You," we weren't really expecting them to win us over with a Radiohead cover.

That's exactly what they've done, however, as the riff-worshipping lads took on Radiohead's super-serious "Street Spirit (Fade Out)," which originally appeared on The Bends.

Here, however, the track is an amped-up arena rock rendition of the original, all kick-ass rock moves in place of art school ambitions.

Check it out below but be warned -- you will never hear the original the same way again.
