Spaghetti & Frank (Mostly) Cover Tom Petty

Spaghetti & Frank is the collaboration of Eddie Spaghetti of the Supersuckers and Frank Meyer of The Streetwalkin' Cheetahs. The duo decided to cover Tom Petty's 1987 classic "Jammin' Me," from the wildly overlooked album Let Me Up (I've Had Enough). It's not a straight up cover, as Spaghetti & Frank have updated some of the lyrics. Since Petty's original discussed the pop culture of the day, such as Joe Piscopo and Eddie Murphy, Spaghetti & Frank used it to discuss more current celebrities like Paris Hilton, Bill Cosby, and Mar-a-Largo. Plus, as you would assume, the cover rocks much harder, going more towards Spaghetti & Frank's punk roots and less in the post New Wave of Petty's. 

You can watch the video for Spaghetti & Frank's version of "Jammin' Me" below. The song is available as a single via Acetate Records. You can download a copy of the song via the band's Bandcamp
