Thrashmetal Laurie Berkner Cover Band 15% Less Annoying

While you're listening to it, this thrasher teenager-in-living room cover version of Laurie Berkner Band's "We Are The Dinosaurs" is easily 10-15% less annoying than the original, but it also goes on almost a minute longer, a full 50% more dinotorture.

Also, it didn't have a nice beat, and the kid couldn't dance to it. I give it a 45, Dick. [Yeah, I'm that old. For the record, I'm assuming the "Fck those Hollywood Holocaust people too" description is a reference to an imaginary rivalry with these teenythrasher metalheads, not Mel Gibson-style codespeak for The Jews. Still, kids these days.]

And while we're on the subject, why are teenagers singing this song? Are they babysitters? The 16 other cover versions on YouTube are by kids under the age of 3.
