We’re fans of the A.V. Club’s “Undercover” series, in which bands visit their offices and play a cover song off a pre-selected list; the limitation means that sometimes the covers are uninspired, but at least as often they force bands to provide an interesting take on a well-known pop single. Even still, we’ve really only linked these clips as part of Last Lap roundups. Today’s entry, however, begs to be shared on its own. The reunited Get Up Kids powerslide their way through a straightforward yet compelling cover of Blur‘s “Boys & Girls,” long a Britpop fave of ours. Enjoy!
