Whoever had the idea to get Spoon to cover the Cramps’ oozing rockabilly classic “TV Set” for the new Poltergeist remake deserves some kind of medal — great song, great cover, thematically appropriate. Last night, noted rockabilly head Conan O’Brien had Spoon on his show to knock out their cover of the song. The members of the band dressed slightly more rockabilly than usual, and they did an absolutely molten, badass rendition of the song. This counts as further evidence that Spoon are one of the greatest rock bands on planet earth. Watch it below.
That “TV Set” cover is out now at iTunes.
