In the latest episode of AV Club’s Undercover series, Mac DeMarco and his crew bring their brand of weirdo rock to the studios to perform a cover of Weezer’s classic Blue Album track. Mac explains, “I remember looking at the list and I said ‘Oh there’s a Weezer song’ – very chill – probably easier than covering like another song. So uh, you know, we were able to learn it in the car on the drive here, which is only two and a half hours hours, which is not that much time to learn a song.”
DeMarco has a history of mischievousness when it comes to incorporating cover songs into his setlist and they take certain liberties with some of the original material. Check out their performance below and see if you can spot the changes:
