Unexpected Cover: Choking Victim - Money Changes Everything

So unless you've been living under a rock for your entire life, your probably at least aware of the Cindy Lauper's version. Although originally recorded by rock band The Brains, it was Lauper's version that made it big. Chocking Victim changed not only the music but the lyrics. Unsurprisingly, Choking Victim's version is ska-tinged punk. The lyrics are more appropriate for their dirty punk sound - "Life is such a lonely place and theres no one you can trust." In a Choking Victim tribute album, Who Am I covered the Chocking Victim version, making it a cover of a cover of a cover.
