Readers’ choice the Donnas rekindle some heavy metal memories — and create some new ones! — while nominating their wish-cover candidates.
Guns N’ Roses
Torry Castellano It would say they were getting back together.
Brett Anderson It would actually be awesome to have the new Guns N’ Roses and the old Guns N’ Roses.
TC Ooh, and on the inside they could have pictures of that chicken coop that Buckethead records in.
Allison Robertson They’re one of our favorite bands. I always felt like they got pigeonholed as the wrong kind of sound. Everybody thinks of them as just glammy hair metal — they really weren’t. And they look great.
TC They’re just some guys from L.A., I think.
BA They gave us a tape, and we grew obsessed. One song is called ”Wild Thighz.” And in almost every song after it, they talk about wild thighs.
TC It’s kind of a theme record.
AR We get obsessed with our fans. We’re like our fans’ superfans.
AC/DC (with Bon Scott)
AR We don’t want to be rude to Brian Johnson, because he is awesome. But it would be cool if they sang together.
BA It would be like Sammy Hagar and David Lee Roth, but they wouldn’t be battling, there would be love between them.
