The "Restless, Restless" Jukebox

Who would have thought that a long forgotten demo of a song written and recorded by two non-musicians over 20 years ago would become one of the most covered songs of all time! Thanks to the exposure of the original demo on the massively popular Howard Stern Show, there are now close to 1000 cover versions of "Restless, Restless" that cover every genre of music. We are still going through all of the different versions and will  eventually post links (where available) to all of the folks that have covered the song. We will also make all of the versions available over time. For now, due to bandwidth issues, we'll link each bands website. Just click on the jukebox label for each artist. As you can imagine, this is a massive undertaking. It will likely take us most of the year but keep checking back as this page will grow to epic proportions.  If you have recorded a version of the song and don't see it here, please send us an email and let us know. Our goal is to eventually house every version of "Restless, Restless" on this site. Thanks again to everyone who took the time to record the song and special thanks to those of you who we have been fortunate to become friends with this past year. C

A kick ass mix of the 2004 demo. The backing track is fantastic and really rocks. Good effects on our voices.

Fantastic alternative pop version of the song. Almost beatleseque. We'd kill to write a melody this strong. Great vocal.

Great 90s style rock version with one of my favorite vocals. These guys are great. Nice tension between the verse and the chorus.

Interesting arrangement. Real good alternative vibe with a nice hard edge to it. Real great guitar sound.

A really authentic Clash style punk rock sound from this UK band. Our first international cover!

Good time George Thorogood style rock and roll boogie from this great rock band out of Pennsalvania.
