All we know about Hinder is that they’re the new Nickelback and they hate OK Go. But when we heard that the (sigh) popular band will be releasing a cover of Eddie Money’s “Take Me Home Tonight,” we sat up in our blogging chairs. That’s a fucking awesome song! And it’s perfect for drunk karaoke, actually — especially if your gal can pull off Ronnie Spector.
Even if their version sucks, it’s a timeless ’80s rock cover choice (a la The Ataris’ take on “Boys Of Summer”). You’re still everything that’s wrong with modern rock, though, Hinder. Take a listen to a fan-captured live performance of the band doing Money here. One of those tunes even they can’t fuck up (too badly)!
