To be clear, we are aware that your dad is too busy doing dad stuff — like hammering nails and not wearing pants, even when your friends come over — to comment on Miley Cyrus’s Soundcloud. We are speaking to the dad inside all of us. This weekend, Miley put up a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” (which itself was a cover of a traditional folk song). It is definitely faithful, if not arguably good. Yet the people who you’d expect weren’t pleased. One guy commented, “Congratulations, you just butchered a great song. Were you on drugs when you decided to record this or when you actually recorded it? I can look past the quality but the guitar parts are not even right in places.” When reached for follow-up, he added, “Get off my lawn!”
