The A.V. Club Presents A.V. Undercover 2012
The A.V. Club, an entertainment newspaper and website published by The Onion, has put out some great cover videos this year so far with their A.V. Undercover 2012 series – a music video series in which 25 bands cover 1 song from a list of 25 well-known songs. Once a band chooses a song, it gets crossed off the list, leaving the last few bands with little to choose from. One of my personal favorites is Young The Giant’s cover of R. Kelly’s “Ignition”:
Other videos this year include Punch Brothers covering The Cars’ “Just What I Needed,” Sharon Van Etten and Shearwater covering Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks’ duet “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” and a Police cover by Memoryhouse. Check them out here.
