The Breeders Covering The Who

"So Sad About Us" is a Who song that I first heard on a Who bootleg.  When I hear it, I hear glimpses of a great tune, but it never seemed fully developed.  I know, I know:  it's a bootleg, and whenever there is unreleased studio recordings on a bootleg, it's not a recording that was intended for public consumption. But the energy, the lack of refinement - something was missing.

There are, however, plenty of great covers of the tune.  For me, the jury is still out on Kim Deal's singing on this version; but all and all, this is one of the better covers of the tune.
