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.
