Overkill: Men at Work vs. Lazlo Bane

“Overkill” was originally recorded and performed by the Australian band Men at Work. Many years later, the song was covered by Lazlo Bane (featuring ex-School of Fish drummer Chad Fischer on vocals/guitar). Got to admit, as much as I love the original, I equally love the cover as it does a noble job of staying close to the original AND the special guest towards the end gives me goosebumps.

Which version do you prefer?

  1. The Lazlo Bane version is a little too close to the original (while losing some of the personality) to win, but it does get points for the guitar solo. And of course the end is really cool, but that just reminded me of how great the original was.
