Patrick Stump covers The Wedding Present
About This Episode

As the Undercover list grew shorter, we worried slightly that The Wedding Present's "My Favourite Dress" would prove to be a stumper. We couldn't have guessed that it wouldn't stump Patrick Stump, singer of Chicago pop-punk kingpins Fall Out Boy. As you'll recall, The Wedding Present already stopped by the office to cover The Rolling Stones' "19th Nervous Breakdown." Here, Stump--whose band is on some kind of "indefinite hiatus" that we didn't ask him about--takes on the cult classic, which originally appeared on The Wedding Present's 1987 album George Best. Stump brought some serious soul to the song, which we imagine he'll be injecting into his debut solo disc, due out later this year.
