Drive Like Jehu cover by THE DEFTONES?!

The Deftones have always been one of those bands that have a handful of killer tracks each album smashed in between a few clunkers. Yes, you can say that about lots of bands, but the Deftones are consistent in this category. I think their last album, Saturday Night Wrist was actually their best so far…stellar melodies via Chino combined with catchy metal guitar riffs and heavy drums. It’s just too bad they don’t stick with that formula because it works for them. Example, see “Cherry Waves” and “Beware.” Fast forward to the next album, Diamond Eyes, and it sort of lays flat. I listened to the album about 3 times in a row and nothings really stands out. However, I just came across this DRIVE LIKE JEHU COVER, which is borderline bad ass and a BONUS track via iTunes…
