Though we’re admittedly lagging one episode behind here at Cover Me, we’re still properly chuffed to finally bring the affable Ted Lasso into our coverage fold. For the occasion of the ninth episode of its second season on Apple TV+, Jeff Tweedy has shared a melancholic cover of the Ted Lasso theme song usually performed by the show’s co-composer Marcus Mumford.
Adam Green – All Hell Breaks Loose (Misfits cover)
Misfits go mariachi! Adam Green, best known as one half of the Moldy Peaches, plays “All Hell Breaks Loose” like it was “Ring of Fire.” He writes: “In The Misfits and in his glorious solo work, Danzig bridged punk and metal with the blue-eyed soul music of the mid-1960’s like The Righteous Brothers and The Walker Brothers. I’d had an idea for a while to do a Scott Walker / John Franz style production at punk speeds, and the Misfits song ‘All Hell Breaks Loose’ seemed like the perfect vessel for the experiment.”
