Kerrin Connolly

This cover was done by Kerrin Connolly who is making a name for herself on YouTube & reminds me of JoCo at times.  After you listen to her cover I suggest checking out some of her other songs.  I'll leave one of my favorites embedded below, but I'll also leave links for you to explore.

Professor Shyguy


The last cover was done using Minecraft.  It was the first cover done using a videogame.  So when I saw Professor Shyguy's Kickstarter I thought, "It's time to get the first cover done using a classic videogame system!"  Please check out his links below for more chiptune goodness.

Jachael123

When I look for people to cover this song, the #1 thing I look for is someone who can do something DIFFERENT.  This certainly does that.  Up to this point, nobody had done a cover of "Today's The Day" using a videogame as their instrument of choice.  Enjoy this note block version of the song done by YouTuber Jachael123, and then check out his channel & other links below.

Ariel Delgado

Feel like doing a remix of "Today's The Day"?  Well here's your chance.  I recently got Ariel Delgado to create a karaoke version of the song.  He was also nice enough to send me each track he used to recreate the music.  I've included all those tracks on this album so you can easily down & remix the song yourself.  I even threw in the original Inverse T. Clown raw vocal track.  At some point I think Dave is going to make a .KFN file of Ariel's track.  So you can sing "Today's The Day" at your favorite karaoke bar!

Jerkatorium

People got a nice little surprise in SpinTunes 14 when Jerkatorium put their own unique twist on the greatest song of all time.  I've left links to all their online stuff below, so after you enjoy the new cover, go check out some of their other works.

Bamboozle

After searching through Kickstarter to find another band to cover "Today's The Day" I found a talented band that I thought could give the song a new twist.  So sit back & get transported to a simpler time as Bamboozle rocks your favorite song.  Afterwards I've embedded another one of their performances you can listen to.  I've also provided links to their website & social media.

Northern National

Ok, so I saw a talented band on Kickstarter one evening that offered a cover song reward.  After backing them, I had a really negative experience with them.  If you're friends with me on Facebook I can share more details with you there, but for now all I'm sharing publicly is included in a post on my personal blog. (Spintown)  I won't be linking to any Northern National social media or anything...I don't really feel like promoting them more than I already am.

Of all the music projects I've backed over the years on Kickstarter (and there have been A LOT), this was the most unprofessional group of them all.

Forlorn Strangers

Another Kickstarter cover!  I found the Forlorn Strangers one night sifting through Kickstarter projects.  They seemed like good people, had a good sound, offered a cover song reward, and there was a banjo in their Kickstarter profile photo...it was fate. ;p  They did their cover on YouTube, and if you want a copy of the song without the long intro you can get that off Bandcamp.

Chris Shaw

Chris ran a Kickstarter to fund a new EP back in mid 2014, and one of the rewards was a new cover song that he would upload on YouTube & SoundCloud.  I liked his sound, so I backed it to get a new take on our favorite song.  The due date for the cover was November 2014..it's now February 2017.  Those of you who know me, know I'm not one to forget or let things go.  So eventually after a handful of e-mails over a span of 2 years a MP3 of "Today's The Day" ended up in my e-mail inbox late in 2016.  He let me know the YouTube version wasn't going to happen, and to his credit he offered to refund my money.  I declined to take a refund because I mainly wanted to hear the cover & in the end I got what I wanted.  After you listen to his cover, you can check out his links below, and his new music video I embedded here as well.

With the help of Kickstarter we continue on our girl power trip.  This time I found someone local to where I live, and we got another great cover out of it.  Make sure you check out her links below.
