Video of the Day: The Mountain Goats Cover Jawbreaker's "Boxcar"
In the latest installment of the A.V. Undercover series, John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats decided to take on Jawbreaker’s 1994 track, “Boxcar.” The song might seem like a surprising choice for the band, but thanks in part to a few lyrical changes, it really works. As Darnielle explains, “You always feel a connection to that sort of thing because the whole thing is: everybody feels beleaguered at some point. I mean, that’s the universal truth of punk… At the same time, I don’t think I feel as beleaguered as the authors of the lyrics do.” Click through for their live performance.
