George Clooney vs. The Ramones

As a blogger, one of the things you have to expect is to get alot of email requests asking for you to post various things. Well, one of the ones I get most often is for me to post a cover of "that song that George Clooney sang in O Brother, Where Art Thou."

I've been holding off as long as I possibly can, but I'm finally giving in and I'll post the cover. It's by band called Osaka Popstar & The American Legends of Punk which includes members of the Ramones, Black Flag, and the Misfits. Now stop it with the emails!

MP3 Osaka Popstar & The American Legends of Punk - Man of Constant Sorrow

So who does it better? George Clooney or a band with a guy from the Ramones... or Joan Baez if you don't like either of them?
Note: Sorry for the small, sort-of crappy post today. I'm still working on something awesome for tomorrow. Trust me, it's worth the wait.

Hopefully I'm not stating the obvious here, but that's not Clooney singing the song.

It's even more obvious that you are stupid. The song is a cover, so Clooney by definition wouldn't be on it.

The Clooney version is better btw.

I believe the point that anonymous 1 was trying to get across is that, the "O brother where art thou" version is sung by Dan Tyminski from Union Station.

Yeah, hlynur got it, and the rest of you are fucking idiots, apparently.

The song is an old standard and has been sung by the likes of Bob Dylan. So I don't get what "so Clooney by definition wouldn't be on it" even means. Since the "Clooney version" (of which there is none, since Clooney never fucking set foot in a recording studio to put vocals down on it) isn't even the original.

Anonymous 1, back again.

For the record, I said that its a cover of "that song that George Clooney sang in O Brother Where Art Thou". I wasn't saying that he actually recorded the song but that his character sang it in the movie.

Anonymous 2 was saying that the MP3 I posted is a cover and doesn't have Clooney on it, but was confused because Clooney wasn't on the original version to begin with.
