27 November 2012 - Camper Van Beethoven - O Death

This song is a standard dirge from Appalachia.  So who better to cover it than a hipster college band?

Actually, I am flippant about the cover, but Camper Van Beethoven did a fantastic job with the bluest of the bluegrass songs.  They took a few creative liberties - lyrically, to make it even darker - but kept the dreary tone.  Brilliantly done.
