eh? That's not so bad. I mean it's not great but at least it sounds like Titus Andronicus rather than, say, the Dropkick Murphys.
For me, that's just it though. If it was the Dropkick Murphys I wouldn't have bothered posting it, 'cause they are dime-a-dozen dire. But Titus Andronicus aren't bad - I like a lot of their stuff. They just got this one all wrong.

not a bad version by any means - but why change the words of the very first line of one of the most recognisable songs ever???

That's insipid. Mind you, I'm not right fond of the overwrought original.
