They Might Be Giants 25 O'Clock Comments
  1. im rather odd

    hecking amazing

  2. Dan Moore

    Time has made me wait too long...

  3. trfesok

    I put both versions in my TMBG playlist. The lyrics are more comprehensible in this version. Thanks for the upload!

  4. ZootsuitRiot88

    By the way This IS NOT Thay MIght be Giants. It IS IN FACT XTC FROM 1985. SEE WIKIPEDIA AND PLEASE CHANGE

    Kombucha

    This is indeed TMBG. Can't you hear the Flans? XTC did the original version as "Dukes of Stratosphear", and it's clearly different: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGF7o_I4mAw

  5. Stephen Allcroft

    Nice cover, didn't even know about it until today.

  7. BestSong Evah

    did you say spleen hump?

  8. BestSong Evah

    Oh yes those young chaps from the black sea with the jules verne thing. nice steampunk ya got there

  9. BestSong Evah

    CARNIES....cream....disreali gears....Rush...clockwork

  10. BestSong Evah

    Reminds me of the Egg Yolk They Might Be Giants of Pink Rock Biding My Time Band again but never be sure with the dukes of giant xtc strats

  11. BestSong Evah

    i.e. the deaf hear!

  12. BestSong Evah

    Yes master, ever since Mesopotamia I smash in your honor!
    I call them broken angels clockworks with their elephant noses and trails attached to their other ones behind and in front of them.

  13. BestSong Evah

    They might be Moon Hooch for I care!
    Dukes of stratospheare Rush 25 oclockwork

  14. Tunisia Dorionne

    I like this better than the original. Though I've been a TMBG fan for a while and hadn't even heard of Dukes of Stratosphear until today, so I might be biased.

    Protherus

    Tunisia Dorionne this one sounds way more powerful, but that little synth that plays along the song is way better in the original for me, here it's just less harmonic and no so 'mystic'

  15. Wigo Os

    25 o cloooaaaackkk!!

  16. beatnikpop

    XTC kicks its own ass with The Dukes of the Stratosphere, even though it's an alterego band, it's so much better than XTC (my personal opinion of course).
    this cover is good, but it lacks the energy of the original

  17. SecretTimeWarp

    They Might Be Giants kicks XTC's ass.

  18. lekkermeisje78757

    Btw the Dukes were a tribute to psychedelia, not a piss-take, and this cover was done for an XTC tribute album (on which XTC also participated, as Terry and the Lovemen, since they couldn't use the XTC name because of their dispute with their label).

  19. lekkermeisje78757

    My two favorite bands. :-)

  20. EmptyMindless Spectre

    asswipe shocking blue

    /watch?v=RTtXVrANEhU

  21. EmptyMindless Spectre

    it's like hunch over eating a burger

    it's more like a tin toy clockwork train

  22. rundoetx

    One great band covering another, wow.

  23. TheBlewis

    Something about this shit reminds me Strawberry Alarms and Oranges that run like Clockwork.

  24. beatnikpop

    i wanted to listen to the Dukes of Stratosphere original...too bad

  25. Cicero

    This is a pretty lame cover by They Might Be Giants. It's a disgrace to show the original album cover by Dukes of Stratosphear (XTC) since it's not even their version.

  26. M R

    TMBG covering Xtc; what a fabulous idea. Have they covered any other Xtc songs? You're My Drug, anyone?

  27. Arvel Perry

    The odds of hearing TMBG perform this live are slim. The odds of hearing XTC perform this live are none. I'm gonna hang out with slim if it comes around. Besides, more groups need to be covering XTC's songs. Their music is worthy.

    L0REN0R2Z0RR0

    If they were playing together, there might be a slim chance. Right now I don't see how they'll ever play it.

  28. Arvel Perry

    The odds of hearing TMBG perform this live are slim. The odds of hearing XTC perform this live are none. I'm gonna hang out with slim if it comes around. Besides, more groups need to be covering XTC's songs. Their music is worthy.

  29. The Other Doctor

    @jaevierum Wow! Agree! I'm sure that TMBG did not understand that it was a 'Piss take'!!!

  30. Charlotte Wood

    Indeed...?

  31. jaevierum

    Blamey!!!!!!!! Bloody good cover!!!!!

  32. Warioman

    @pooFU Its an 80s take on 60s psychedelia, you're not supposed to understand the lyrics.

  33. UltimatePsych

    hell yeah, sounds like a Helloween song, (80's metal bitches)

  34. ppauly

    thanks for murdering the song guys

  35. Mari-Louise Jansson

    I love this song i haven´t heard it for a long time, i love the cover

  36. geeko55

    I found this on a TMBG podcast, really rocking song!

  37. xnonsuchx

    TMBG had met XTC (AP & CM, anyway) during the recordings of songs for the Carmen Sandiego: Out of This World album, and that's partly where this cover, as well as their own XTC vs. Adam Ant song came from.

  38. 0okamino

    I wouldn't say it's better than the original, but I think it does it justice.

  39. Daniel Wishart

    Great cover
