The A.V. Club - Undercover

Show Summary

The A.V Club - Undercover is the music series produced by the A.V. Club. Producers bring together 25 bands to cover 25 songs, all in the small, round room of the A.V. Club office. The up-and-coming bands are invited to play a song from the list developed by the A.V. Club staff. Once a band plays a song, it is crossed off the list so that future bands won't have that as an option. Bands discuss why they selected a song and share their artistic vision for the cover. Episodes include The Walkmen, from New York, covering R.E.M's "Driver 8" from 1985, Tokyo Police Club singing Billy Squier's "Everybody Wants You," Cymbals Eat Guitars taking on "Detroit Has A Skyline" by Superchunk and Ben Folds covering Elliott Smith's "Say Yes." Once the songs and videos were completed, viewers had a chance to vote on their favorite cover. The A.V. Club is an entertainment newspaper and website published by The Onion dedicated to providing real interviews, reviews and features that follow the entertainment and pop culture of the day.moreless
