My gut instinct is that the answer is The Bangles, but I have no recollection of ever hearing the Atomic Kitten cover, so I have to go with choice #3 in order to not unfairly weigh the balance. :)

Ditto. If I have heard it before, my mind has blanked out the trauma. :)

I needed tickyboxes instead of radio buttons to answer that question properly, since I wanted to check #1 and #3!

And more, I can't believe the lovely Mrs nwhyte is asking, either!

*wonders just what is going on over there?*

Not that I CAN believe that you asked the question, but I think the Sussana Hoffs factor can't be ignored for those of us of that generation. (Not that that is a necessarily a helpful comment.)

What he said. And please do explain the question. (even this 30 something goth liked the Bangles)

I refuse to vote on the grounds that the damn song is stuck in my head just from reading the poll and shows no signs of departing my brain any time soon.

I don't really think either version is good. But if I have to pick one, I'd go for the Bangles just because covers stink anyhow. :-)

While the Bangles is self-evidently the correct choice I was strongly tempted to the third option.

Not my favorite Bangles song (that would be "Dover Beach"), but how can anyone think Atomic Kitten's travesty in any way matches the original?

The Bangles were a damn good band. Lots of groups have one or two catchy hits. With the Bangles, once you got past the catchy hits, the other material was better. And some of it was superb.

No contest, surely?
The idea that either of you could prefer the Atomic Kitten cover fills me with irrational dread.

I mean, the Bangles could, you know, sing.
Plus, phwooooaaarr.

Uh, yeah, that was exactly what I meant.

This question almost does not warrant answering! But I will, anyway.
The Bangles version is supreme. Liz, Natasha and Jenny collectively don't have the musical talent of Susanna Hoffs' gall bladder!!!

Has to be the Bangles, I was overjoyed when my girls 3 month fixation with Atomic Kitten ended and they moved on to Avril Levigne, not that I particularly like the spunky Canadian punkster, but anything was better than Atomic Kitten.

My favourite Bangles song is about them, not by them, The Sawdoctors had a wonderful track called "I'd love to kiss the Bangles" that's the song I'll have trouble getting out of my head tonight I'm afraid

Sk8er Boi has to be the least countercultural "indie" song ever. The other girl's sad she left him because now he's a successful rock star? Why didn't you just call it StOKbrOKer Boi and get it over with?

The Bangles' version is the definitive one, though I should stop at this point to mention the surpassingly lame acoustic guitar solo.

I don't even remember the Bangles' version from the time it was released but even I know it's a better version!
