Deer Tick covers Harvey Danger

I'm not sick, but I'm not well

About This Episode

Deer Tick has offered up raucous cover songs in the past, even transforming from time to time into Deervana, a rip-roaring Nirvana cover band. For his trip to the little round room, though, Deer Tick mainman John McCauley chose Harvey Danger's out-of-nowhere 1998 hit "Flagpole Sitta." That song's origin is pretty interesting: Released independently on Harvey Danger's debut album, the song exploded into the mainstream, appearing on dozens of TV shows and movies and even Now That's What I Call... compilations. Deer Tick adds a little dirt to the proceedings. Enjoy.
