The Feelers are a lame choice, poor RWC.

Bwahaha, I got a quote in the NZ Herald, that’s so funny. But y’know what, IT’S SO TRUE!

Why, oh why? Why pick The Feelers, they are so damn lame. The Rugby World Cup 2011 is our chance to be on the world stage. Surely there is a band more deserving of this opportunity than those old has-been boring pants The Feelers. What a wasted chance!!

The choice of a cover of Right Here, Right Now by The Feelers as a marketing jingle for the 2011 Rugby World Cup has been widely panned by New Zealanders posting on the social networking site Twitter.

“You are SO freaken’ uncool if you pick The Feelers,” wrote “bunnzy” before it was officially announced that the Christchurch band would cover the song which was first released by Jesus Jones as a single in 1990.

“Kittengloves” said the only thing that could be worse than the original version would be a cover by The Feelers, whose well-known singles include Pressure Man, Venus and Stand Up.

“At least we won’t have to hear it much..Oh no wait!”, she wrote.
