And Now, Because It Exists, Let Us Watch The Walkmen Cover “Holiday Road”

We were devoted fans of The A.V. Club’s Undercover series around here, and to our delight, they’re at it again—only this time, rather than forcing bands to choose a cover song from a pre-assembled list, they’re simply requiring that whatever song they choose be somehow related to Christmas. For the first installment, they’ve got The Walkmen covering “Holiday Road,” and it’s a perfectly enjoyable introduction to the series, what with the Santa hats and all. Now that I think about it, though, they would have been much better off with one of the more melancholy Christmas songs, like, say… this. Also, I really hope someone covers this. And this, obviously. And also a million others, which we’ll talk about quite a bit in these next few weeks. I am already crying.
