Agreed!  You and I are two of the few who enjoy this cover....for me it's the incongruity of the vocal style and lyrical content.  And that "fucking lock" line is really what Gloria probably wanted to say in her song.  It's a 10 for me!

A little of Cake's snarky detached irony goes too far. Overall, it's nice to see that Socalhol's post refers to the band in the past tense.

I guess I can appreciate what they were going for here, but... yuck.

agreed - use of irony requires a bit of smarts to start

this is just torturous

The original song is now kitsch and only bearable in parties but this cover is in no occasion bearable !  It's a 1 from me and would be a 0 if that was an option...

Perhaps the lock was manufactured in Fucking, Austria?
 
I learned today that the Fucking police are angry because British tourists are continually stealing the Fucking sign from the edge of town. In fact, the police are so mad that they've now sunk the Fucking sign in concrete. That ought to discourage those, um, British tourists.

This song in its original version has always threatened me as a man because of the way it riles up the feminist in any woman at a wedding.

Thanks to Cake for making it safe for me to enjoy it again.

This could have been outstanding. His staccato vocals kinda ruin it for me. Still, I give it a 6 for pure novelty. {#Propeller}

Sorry, I'm loyal to the original, feminist version.  I was newly widowed when it came out, so it has a meaning for me.  This version is gross.  {#No}
