TV on the Radio covered one of the greatest songs of all time, ‘Waiting Room’ by Fugazi, at the Pitchfork Festival over the weekend. Here’s a good-quality video of the performance, though it cuts out about halfway through.

It sounds more than a touch lightweight to me. Then again, my favourite part of the original is Ian MacKaye’s raspy vocal and Tunde Adebimpe’s shrill singing doesn’t really measure up in my eyes. Check out this live recording of Fugazi performing ‘Waiting Room’ and compare.

I dunno I thought it sounded pretty sweet from that minute and half of that video up their (not as good as the original obviously). And even if it sucked, hearing TV on the Radio cover Fugazi is not something I would miss. Two amazing bands.
