Need an ‘80s fix today? Check out Ryan Adams’ acoustic cover of Ratt’s hair-metal hit “Round and Round” after the jump.
Adams, known for his prolific songwriting (including last year’s critically acclaimed album Ashes & Fire) and penchant for donning classic rock t-shirts, injected way more empathy into the tune than could have ever been realized (or intended, for that matter) back in 1984.
Listen to the cover and watch the ridiculous original video here and be sure to head over to NPR to hear Adams’ short set from Weekend Edition Sunday.
