Can’t show ‘em good music... (or ask for extra help, haha)

Anyway, if you don’t recognise it through the first 2 samples, I doubt you will from this third. I’ll leave it up for a bit and post a sample from a more famous song from the band - which I’m sure everyone knows - sometime later.
Plot: "When Frank accidentally hits Dennis's car while Dennis is eating cereal, Frank and Dennis go to the Paddy's Pub court to face off on who will pay for the damages."

Wait, I know this. It's from the second Velvet Underground album. Let me search for the title.

Yep! That's it. At some point I must learn this short story by heart.

Yeah, it's awesome. Nice pick!

7th sample. This is getting depressing.

Another hint: this guy died way too early.

Is anyone still reading this thread?

Sounds cool, but I can't say I can recognize the voice (or any 90s alt rock voice). What is it?

Doesn't sound like Chris Cornell

I can't believe nobody recognized this. This album is a classic. He's one of the best vocalists ever. If you don't know it, please listen to the full album.

Can't add any MP3s any more here. :shrug:

PA or other mods, would it be possible to enable more file formats?

Edit: I hope this works, but it would be much better if I could simply attach tiny MP3 snippets, of course.

A cover by "Weird Al" Yankovic is the only thing that comes to mind, but it's probably not correct. Apart from that I've got nothing.

Gangsta's Paradise isn't the original song. And this version comes from a great album with only covers. The artist has been active for more than four decades.

Here's a final hint.
