Driving into New Orleans last week, I was listening to WSM. Another song started playing, and a few bars in I was thinking "I know that song... and it's.. not... country. Mandolin... that should be an electric guitar."
Turns out it was a cover of The Replacement's "Can't Hardly Wait." A punk/proto-alt song turned inside out and into country? Sure, and it even worked pretty well. Sorta freaked me out when I realized what the song was though.
Wish I knew who did that cover. I'd buy it in a second.
ps 11/22: through the magic of iTunes search bar, the singer turns out to be Justing Townes Earle.
