Bummer cover

No Doubt is covering Stand and Deliver, and it is sad. Sad because it slaughters a perfectly good song and because No Doubt is capable of so much more. It is not the best match as the original so nicely balances irony and a desire for pop success, and No Doubt doesn't go for irony. Generally speaking, slowing the tempo is a good way to go in covers, but not in this case apparently.
