LIVESound: The Mountain Goats Cover Jawbreaker for A.V. Undercover


The A.V. Club's Undercover project continues to unravel itself week by week, and unlike Low's recent ironic take on Toto's "Africa," indie rockers, The Mountain Goats, decided to tug at our teenage rebellion heartstrings by covering Jawbreaker's 24 Hour Revenge Therapy classic, "Boxcar." Anyone who grew up listening to Blake Schwarzenbach and company in the mid-'90s has a soft spot for this track and its emotively poetic lyrics about punk poseurism. Seeing that John Darnielle and The Mountain Goats are known for songs deep-seeded with stories sang from a fictional character's perspective, the apple doesn't really fall too far from the tree here...
