80. “Lazy Eye” by Silversun Pickups (2006)

I make no apologies that this list contains some bands that are straight up rip off artists for a sound that has long since passed. I included Interpol in this list earlier and now we have the best Smashing Pumpkins cover band this side of LA, Los Silversun Pickups.

Maybe I am not giving these guys enough credit. No worries though, this band harkens back to the early to mid 90s and they nail that whole dream pop sound so well that it was impossible not to put them in here. There were a bunch of great tunes I could have included, like “Well Thought Out Twinkles” and “Kissing Families” but “Lazy Eye” made the cut, as even the video is has those 90s style themes to it. Let’s let it stand on its own, though: take a look and listen here.
