A couple of months ago, we posted a list of the 10 best Coldplay covers. That list is safe. New Jersey punk rock champions Titus Andronicus recently posted an intentionally ramshackle, lo-fi cover of “In My Place” on Twitter, and holy god this thing is awful. It’s awful on purpose, but it’s still awful. Also, I don’t remember that part about taking a dirty shit in the original song. Listen below.
Hey, you were warned. In slightly less unexpected news, members of Titus and the So So Glos, performing together as the Shea Stadium All-Stars, also posted a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Glory Days,” and it’s done with a bit more reverence, or at least less obvious hatred. Listen to that one here, also via the Titus Twitter.
