Today’s my last full day in Chicago, and I already can’t wait to come back.

#songoftheday: Me First and the Gimme Gimmes – Believe (Cher Cover)

I’ve been listening to Me First and the Gimme Gimmes for more than half my life, and today, I’ll finally see them perform live.

I’m guaranteed to lose my mind.

So you’re one of the biggest bands on the planet, and a new movement in rock music has people thinking you’re starting to sound passé.  What do you do?

Release an album of punk covers, and name it after that time the old drummer tried to sue the band…  Sure, why not?

In the world of Punk Rock Covers, no band comes even remotely close to Me First and the Gimme Gimmes.

They’ve really outdone themselves on this new album. It perfectly combines the high quality song picks of their first album, with the more complicated arrangements from their later releases. When it’s performed by these guys, turning Celine Dion’s well known ballad into an Irish drinking song just makes sense.
