The Status Quo version is crap compared to Camper Van Beethoven's rocker

Camper totally rocks it. People probably aren't voting for them because they don't know who they are. But Dave Lowry (CVB, Cracker) is a great songwriter in his own right and CVB was a great band. They did the best live cover of a Grateful Dead song (Loser) I ever heard.

I heard the song on an episode of "life" and went absolutely apey trying to remember where I had heard that song before! (I like moldy oldies.) Well, thanks to Google, I found it and I must say that I am torn. They're both good in their own right. If I must choose, I'll go with Camper Van Beethoven.
