Who did it better? - Lynyrd Skynyrd vs. Deftones

First of all, I would like to say that I have never typed out "Lynyrd Skynyrd" before, and it really made me do a double-take (or should I say tryple-take...).

I know neither of these groups are actually indie (or should I say actuarily indie...) but I think this is a great song, and worthy of this site nonetheless.

So anyways, last week I finally crossed the Deftones off of my "favorite bands that I haven't seen live yet" list, in incredible fashion at First Avenue in Minneapolis.  So in honor of them, and my still-buzzing eardrums, I bring you this week's "Who did it better?" competition.

And this time, the answer is rather simple.

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Simple Man


Deftones - Simple Man
(I looked all over for a live version, but couldn't find one.  So for this one, you have permission to click "play" and then go do something else.  It's worth your time, te juro.)


(Confidential to Matt: I'm sorry for all the god-awful puns, I couldn't stop myself, but please don't fire me...)
