Everything Goes Numb - 12 Tracks, 1 Cover (Not counting the bit from Brahms' Hungarian Dance 5)
Keasbey Nights (APBSM) - 14 Tracks, 14 Covers
Somewhere in the Between - 10 Tracks, 0 Covers
99 Songs of Revolution vol. 1 - 11 Tracks, 11 Covers

Out of a total of 47 tracks, Kaln0ky has released 26 covers. That is more than half of his entire catalog.

He has covered two songs by Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution, which is significant considering that BotAR itself only has three original songs, not counting the intro track to A Call to Arms.

The wait time between SLM releases has been:
EGN: Aug 26, 2003
(2 years, 7 months)
KNAPBSM: Mar 7, 2006
(1 year, 7 months)
SitB: Nov 9, 2007
(2 years, 4 months)
99SoRv1: Mar 16, 2010

On average, the wait time until an album drops is:
(31 + 19 + 28)/3 = 26 months = 2 years, 2 months

So if we conjecture that it takes over 2 years for the Streetlamps to put out new material, and half of their releases have been covers, we can then draw the conclusion that we, on average, wait 1 year per release for T0mas to write actual new material, and 1 year for him to run on his treadmill while listening to his iPod.

Also, while European women aren't usually fat, most smoke, which is a huge turnoff for me personally. But really, what the fuck...it's just a one night stand anyways, so who cares at that point.

Someone count up for me a total of every song Goiter has recorded, how many of them are covers, and a percentile of original to cover songs. I'm not doing it but I know someone wants to.

Well essentially the keasbey nights would cancel each other, and for sake of argument we'll say that the entire bandits ep is canceled out as well. the 99sor cover album cancels out one of the original SM material albums, leaving one full album of original material above material that's been covered.

Gimp? Brings it two albums up?

Still a pretty ugly ratio for a band.

Oh yeah, I forgot about Gimp. Two albums then.

And yeah it's a pretty ugly ratio but I think it's due to a pretty unique history.

My point is, Streetlight is good. I mean, really really good. All this cover album shit is just wasted potential though. Sure I'd like a Bad Religion covre here or there. plenty of people might like some NOFX or Radiohead covers, but where does it end? At this rate, I'm never going to see them release anything that compares to EGN...Just another cover album every two years.
