There’s been some grumbling about the last two installments of the A.V. Club’s web series “Undercover: 25 Bands, 25 Cover Songs, 1 Small Room,” which saw prog-metal outfit Coheed & Cambria covering The Smiths and Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump going solo acoustic to tackle The Wedding Present.
This week, though, is a different story: Veteran Chapel Hill, N.C., indie rockers Superchunk turned in an appropriately raucous cover of The Cure’s 1985 single “Inbetween Days,” giving the chipper pop tune a rough-and-tumble makeover.
The series — which also has featured Ted Leo and the Pharmacists covering Tears for Fears’ “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” and Maritime doing Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence” — has just a few more songs left available for visiting artists to cover, including The Replacements’ “I Will Dare” and R.E.M.’s “Driver 8.”
