ABSOLUTExclusive: The Boys Of Summer Cover

Posted by - 10:35 PM on 09/14/10
The Boys of Summer is a band that's good. They make honest pop music for people with honest ears. So when they wanted help releasing a cover of the new Kid CuDi single "Erase Me," we were like, "Um, yeah baby." That cover, which is a nice little reinterpretation on the Kid's spacey hip-hop stylings, can be streamed on the band's AP.net Profile. Take a listen, and if you like it (or if you're feeling super feisty), download the song here. It's free - like our love.

My band, Hearts Of Giants, have been promoting and giving away a cover of this song for three weeks now. Apparently it's harder for some to get news posted than others. Haven't heard theirs so I'm not ragging on it in any way, but here's a link to ours. Features an original verse from Columbus, OH rapper Skeptik.

I have a huge problem with bands covering songs that are already on the charts. If this were a cover of "Tubthumpin'" or "6 Underground" then I'd be okay with this. Just my personal opinion.

If they covered songs that weren't on the charts, most people wouldn't give a shit. Of course, you were just expressing your opinion and I dont mean to shit on it.

I've been listening to Kid CuDi all week so I definitely think this cover is pretty sweet.

I've wanted to cover this song since I heard it. They did a great job with it.
