The Kills - "One Silver Dollar" (Marilyn Monroe Cover) - Pretty Much Amazing

The Kills - "One Silver Dollar" (Marilyn Monroe Cover)

Publish date:

Allison Mosshart and Jamie Hince aka garage rockers The Kills were in Australia this past weekend for the Splendour In The Grass festival along with Kanye West, Coldplay, Modest Mouse, James Blake, Cut Copy, Foster The People, the list honestly goes on and on, and so far whatever reviews have surfaced about the show have been absolutely, well, splendid.

Before their set, The Kills stopped by the increasingly popular radio station, Triple J, to perform a cover of Marilyn Monroe's “One Silver Dollar.” The similarities between it and the original don't really exist much past the lyrics, but Mosshart does a great job keeping it classic, preserving only the acoustic guitar riffs and her own vocals. Hear “One Silver Dollar” below, and cop their most recent, Blood Pressures, if you haven't yet.
