In anticipation of their Weezer tribute EP, “You Blue It,” Florida emo rockers You Blew It! are now streaming their cover of “My Name Is Jonas.” It’s a pretty straightforward cover that’s true to the original and packs just as powerful of a punch.
Frontman Tanner Jones had this to say about covering one of this iconic band’s most memorable songs:
“To say that My Name Is Jonas is an imperfect song would be the biggest lie of all time and is probably the easiest way to out yourself as a clear poseur. This made covering it very tough. After hours of pulling our hair out, we realized that altering it just for the sake of change might be borderline sacrilegious. For good conscience, we decided to keep the song as is, and bow our heads in respect for a song that begs nothing but tribute.” (via USA Today)
