Covers Month, Day 18: "Everybody's Gonna Be Happy"
The Kinks are almost as overrated as The Rolling Stones, but they sure had a handful of good songs, and Everybody's Gonna Be Happy is one of them. Queens Of The Stone Age covered it on the limited edition of their third album Songs For The Deaf . They also covered its b-side Who'll Be Next In Line on their Feel Good Hit Of The Summer single two years prior and that kicked all kinds of ass, but I think this one is even better.

For a while I toyed with the idea of perhaps ditching QOTSA altogether and post Green Day's Kinks cover Tired Of Waiting For You , but then someone screwed my head back on. (mp3) The Kinks - Everybody's gonna be happy (1965) (mp3) Queens Of The Stone Age - Everybody's gonna be happy (2002).
