Vampire Weekend covers Rancid

Say what you will about Vampire Weekend - and really, so many people have given their opinion that there really isn't anything new to add at this point - but, despite their generally preppy aesthetic, they're pretty legit punk and hardcore fans. So it shouldn't have been much of a surprise when they covered Rancid's 1995 classic "Ruby Soho" over the weekend at a Radio 1 session. Their version is certainly Vampire-Weekend-ized (the opening is a little Joe Jackson), so your enjoyment will depend entirely on your ability to tolerate that. Listen here.
