No matter who you are, chances are while listening to R&B singer R. Kelly’s “Ignition (Remix),” you feel the same joy that comes with summer or a good night out bubble up inside. Or, at the very least, you bob your head in enjoyment. It’s just one of those songs — it feels good whenever, wherever, and however it’s played. That’s probably why Young the Giant’s cover of the 2002 R&B hit is so damn good…well, that and the fact that the alternative rock band is quite a talented quintet.
Young the Giant performed their cover of “Ignition (Remix)” for the A.V. Club’s “A.V. Undercover” 2012 series and made sure to show off their California roots with psychedelic electric guitar riffs, a smooth bassline, and a laid-back attitude. Check out their performance of the cover below! (via A.V. Club)
