Now this I don't understand, two hardcore bands releasing a split 7" apparently of Cheap Trick covers, like most people in the UK I'm not that familiar with Cheap Trick beyond seeing photos of that guy with the ten armed guitar and the music on this 7" is really quite odd, consisting as it does of the songs being played seemingly pretty straight but with hardcore vocals. R'n'R is more sort of yelled while The A Team is just sung in a less than melodic fashion, it is all strangely endearing though, i think it just escapes from being a novelty record and stays with paying tribute, but it's a fine line...
