ABSOLUTExclusive: RX Bandits' Cover Weezer's...

Posted by: Keagan Ilvonen (06/14/13)
So as everyone already knows, RX Bandits are returning for their ten year anniversary of The Resignation. With the tour, the guys are releasing a covers EP and we're lucky enough to bring you the band's cover of Weezer's "Surf Wax America" from their iconic, Blue Album. Jump to the replies to give it a listen and peep what guitarist Steve Choi had to say about the cover below.
Ah Weezer, ubiquitous in mainstream rock music since all of us children of the 80's were teenagers. Our fans take us more seriously than we like to take ourselves so we wanted to do an easy, poppy song to show our musical range. All the cool kids like to claim Pinkerton, and I love that record too, but the Blue Album is stocked with bangers.

FALSE! They wont play secret agent man anymore!

JK, all kidding aside (because I know Matt gets annoyed by these types of comments) Matt's voice sounds so good! Heres to hoping for some original stuff from the RXB crew!

Such a good cover, reminds me of the old RXB songs. I can't wait to see them live next month, and I hope they put out new originals soon!

Wow, I hadn't thought about RX Bandits in forever. Last time I saw them live was maybe 02'? With NFG and Catch 22 I believe. Still have the signed shirt.

Also this song is completely rad. Although I still hold that Only In Dreams is the best Weezer song evar.
