When FIDLAR covers a song, you know you are in for a ride. The skate rockers often cover songs in an abrasive, in-your-face manner, but still manage to expose a certain sincerity that often gets lost in overt punk attitudes. Their rendition of Sheryl Crow’s “If It Makes You Happy,” is no exception.
The band matched the song to the original 1996 music video, because, you know, punk rock. FIDLAR manages to get a little gauzy with the verses and stay true to the original, slowly luring its listener into a false sense of security for when the raw and loud chorus hits. Watch the disturbing but somehow awesome video below:
