    yeah not to be smug but it is a bass like Emma said, and I think he's even playing rhythm bass at that!

    Re: Douche Hunter – if he played a beatles track would you then say that he's 70 years late??

    Re: Pauline – Not at all. I just think he is trying way too hard to be relevant. Would Foster the People cover Adele or Chris Browns Elevator hit? ehhh no
    just too soon and too tired. He might as well have played Crazy by Cee Lo.

    I think that Usher did a great job doing "Pumped Up Kicks"….he knew he would do a great job or else he wouldn't have done it. So you all can take your negative comments and shove them. Being an artist and performing is no easy task. He didn't ruin this song either…..he had fun with it and that is a part of what music is all about. Let me see you all with the negative comments do this song!
    P.S: I love myself some Usher <3

    I thought it was a good version, usher is a talented dude so its nice to see his spin on something that isn't his normal genre….

    and I laughed when I saw guitar… lol isn't Perez supposed to know something about music but he can't identify a Bass? lol well I guess its still a guitar not a stand up so close!
