We’ve written a lot about the slew of artists covering the theme song to Adult Swim’s Squidbillies over the last few weeks.
Father John Misty
made it a honky-tonk country song, Kurt Vile turned in a finger-picking good rendition and now, Georgia’s very own B-52s have done … something.
In music genre terms, it’s sort of a psychobilly/surf-rock mashup. In normal terms, it just sounds downright uncomfortable.
Listen to the cover (if you dare) and watch the band do their thing all over the song in a short making-of video below. The band’s version will appear on this Sunday’s forthcoming Squidbillies episode, titled “Trackwood Race-ist.”
