Episode Summary

EDIT
Tokyo Police Club covers Billy Squier
AIRED:
Tokyo Police Club had just two songs to choose from for Undercover--they thought they had three, but Cymbals Eat Guitars grabbed "Detroit Has A Skyline" just hours before TPC chose Billy Squier's "Everybody Wants You," the leadoff track from Squier's amazingly titled 1982 album Emotions In Motion. (If you're keeping score, that means the final track chosen was "Driver 8" by R.E.M., which is up next week.) These young men--who weren't born when Squier's song hit the charts--rocked the song plenty, riffing a little harder than they generally do in their own songs. But don't take our word for it: Check out TPC's latest album, Champ.moreless
