VOTD: Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. cover Pavement

‘Everytime, everytime, everytime, everytime …’



What’s a more perfect song for the A.V. Club’s “Summer Break” series than a gentler, more melodic and acoustic version of Pavement’s classic “Summer Babe,” I ask? Well, certainly not the winter version.

Note: ‘Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.’ might just be one my all-time favorite non-metal band name.
