In South Dakota several years I was hearing rumors about how a Christian hardcore band had supposedly covered this song. If so that is the most awesome thing ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIGAZnk5Iwo

Exactly what I thought when I read the thread title. BRTD really does need start listening to stuff that came out before 1980.

The band's name is nice. The sound is nothing that anyone wasn't doing in the 90's. But the vocal... It really sucks!
I always wonder if Ian MacKaye and Guy Picciotto are fond of the horrible bands they inspired.

It happens. Also I'm sure the band was just thinking of the Tiffany version since gimmicky covers of pop songs are far more common than gimmicky covers of 60s psychedelic rock songs.

Don't you at least think the band would be fun live? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SgL7Fh6ZjnI

While doubtless Naso would love the hairstyles all the girls in it are far too young for him. Of course per Wikipedia Tiffany is pretty hot now and more to his liking (and mine).

Much better sound.
But from his bangs I would guess the lyrics are the same Emo crybaby rant. "Daddy denied me my milk with pear and ovaltine, now I hate the world and wanna cut my throat".
Also, WTF is that guy between 0:39 and 0:44?? Is he trying to be a chopper or something?
Well, I'm just a nostalgic quasi-old who remembers when Emo was this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uahjvD7EjVM&feature=relmfu
I know that ranting against younger folks music is awful. Even when our rant is that It isn't aggressive enough or lacks punk cred.

Oh and the lyrics to that song:

Quote
I hope you choke on my ing heartbeat and drown in my blue blood.
The lonely walks bring out the lonely eyes.
The hunger dies because of the lies.
My stomach asks for something you can't give, something you can't feed me anymore.
I bet we believed nothing could change us.
Now our limbs have turned into shovels that even out the dirt.
I just like to think out loud. My ears are tired and mouth is sore from the life that you can't handle anymore.
If I could give you just one night I would make it last two seconds.
You make me feel so alive but that same love won't let me survive.
So come one, destroy me.
You say you eat hearts for breakfast, better cook up mine for it's the most important meal you will ever have.
Enjoy tonight because tomorrow I will force this straw deep into your throat and take back what once was mine.
I just finished chapter one of "it's not you, it's me."

Was Moss Icon actually known in France while they were around? That type of music didn't really hit continental Europe until the mid-90s.

I live in Brazil since I was three. And cassetes flew fast hand-to-hand before the digital age. Also there always were specialized music shops which imported (legally or not) any underground music.
Many of us knew new punk or eletronic music before it hit its american or european niches.
