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”:


Young The Giant covers “Ignition (Remix)”

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.

New Young The Giant Video

Cali alternative rockers Young The Giant released a new video yesterday for “Apartment,” one of the singles off their self-titled 2010 debut. It looks like the guys and their friends had a blast shooting this video and really makes me want to skip ahead to the summer so I can road trip to the beach (with Young The Giant on full blast on my car stereo, of course). Check the video out for yourself:
