The A.V. Club debuted a new web series today entitled Undercover. It will showcase 25 indie acts tackling 25 classic tunes every Tuesday. Tracks such as The Cure’s “In Between Days,” M.I.A.‘s “Paper Planes,” Neutral Milk Hotel’s “Two-Headed Boy,” and Pavement’s “Cut Your Hair,” and Elliott Smith’s “Say Yes” will be on tap each week. The inaugural episode went live today and features Ted Leo and the Pharmacists covering Tears for Fears’ 1985 mega-single “Everybody Wants to Rule the World.” They treat its legacy very well.

The indie-punks practiced the tune with a karaoke-like album release soiree for The Brutalist Bricks last Tuesday. At the party, they backed a very enthused fan. Both covers are available to view below and check back next week to discover what band will cover Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence.”
