Midweek Music: Stomp Those Flowers Edition

There are loads of “punk covers” out there, and they’re almost uniformly crap. (Like most self-identified punk music, actually, but that’s for another time.) But this cover of the Foundation’s Build Me Up Buttercup by the Goops? Tops the original, in my book. Easily.

(The video is mislabeled – that’s the Goops’ cover, not the Foundation’s original)

P.S. – I saw the first daffodil open along the Potomac today.
