Watch Screaming Females Cover Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”

The great Jersey punk power trio Screaming Females are no strangers to the A.V. Club’s A.V. Undercover web series, in which bands pick a song from a list to cover. Three years ago, they made their first appearance, reducing Sheryl Crow’s “If It Makes You Happy” to flaming wreckage. And now they’re back on the latest episode, taking on Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” and giving it a surprisingly straight reading. I would’ve rather heard them cover literally any other Taylor Swift song, but it’s still a blast to hear frontwoman Maria Paternoster applying her unhinged megaton howl to Swift’s lyrics. The “this sick beat” spoken-word bit is especially transcendent, as is Paternoster’s “I guess we’re done now” face. Watch the performance below.

Screaming Females’ fucking incredible new album Rose Mountain is out now on Don Giovanni.
