Art of the Remake VIII

Strutter, the KISS classic, a standard in The Donna’s set:

The original:

Our standard: “If you are going to cover a song, rip it apart a bit and make it your own.”

The Donna’s version exists in a world where punk rock happened. They do an all girl version of a hairy chested, swaggering guy song, and do it without irony. They own it and make something out of it that is their own. I love how the crowd is singing along so loudly. I wish I had been at that party.

The official Donna’s video of the song also pretty cool. (Brett looks fetching in Paul Stanley’s makeup.)
