From what I hear all Alice is doing is adding in the chorus of ABITW in the middle of the song and then going right back into SO. I don't think it's that bad since both songs do share the 'school' theme.

Otherwise I agree with you about covers. The only way I let is slide is if it's someone like Metallica doing AIE or WITJ because in that case the covers are a million times more well known then the originals. Metallica covering AIE for the last 30 years is the main reason most people even recognize the Diamondhead name at all.
