Titus Andronicus and the Hold Steady are two of the greatest bands mining the intersection of punk and classic rock, so it’s good and right that Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn is opening for Titus on tour. Titus and Finn have at least one other thing in common: They both have songs called “No Future.” So to hype up the tour, they covered each other’s tracks. But wait! There’s more! You can also watch footage of Finn guesting with Titus on covers of Billy Joel’s “You May Be Right,” the Replacements’ “Bastards Of Young,” and his own band’s “Stuck Between Stations.” The covers were recorded during Titus Andronicus’ run of The Most Lamentable Tragedy release shows in Brooklyn last summer.
