I dont know if any of you are Redditors, but did anybody see that Wagon Wheel was on the front page all day? More people than I thought know it from Darius Rucker, rather than Old Crow it seems. Confused

It's fine, maybe more people will find the band this way, but again I beseech the heavens and ask what -- what is the appeal of that boring-ass cover?

This is my favorite version of the Batman slapping Robin meme. Hands down.

That panel sat there for decades waiting for a hootie to be birthed and an interweb to be algored before it would ever know a raison d'etre. Amazing.

Circle of life, y'all.

I don't think the Rucker version is too bad... I'll listen to it when it comes on the radio.

I think it was a matter of time before someone had a hit with the song, since it's already a standard of every country/rock/folk group out there.

I've been wondering, though, what would have happened if Old Crow had re-recorded a Troubles version of the song, all plugged in with some nice steel guitar. I think it would have been close enough to what's on radio to possibly be the one that charts. But I think Rucker's version is serviceable, anyway.

We can add Scotty McCreary, our University Chancelor, and Football Coach to the mix of those that cover Wagon Wheel.

Though I do have to admit, singing the song in Raleigh does have charm....
