White Stripes Walking with a Ghost

I guess this track has been out for a while now, but I just heard the White Stripes cover Tegan & Sara's Walking with a Ghost on XM this evening. Lots of people are hating it, but it sounds like a pretty straight forward rendition to me. If nothing else, Tegan & Sara must be thrilled.

Covers have always intrigued me. I'd say 99% of covers are unnecessary, but when extremely well known bands like the White Stripes cover a song from a much lesser known group like Tegan & Sara... to me that shows a great deal of respect that they must have for these girls.
