Before you get upset, like you did at And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, you should know this: Screaming Females understood the rules of A.V. Undercover. We asked the New Jersey band if they wanted to participate and showed them the list of remaining songs. They politely declined, for the very good reason that they didn't think they could tackle any of them properly, having just started a tour. They did, however, offer up "If It Makes You Happy," which they'd already been playing live. Since we damn near included a Sheryl Crow song on the list this year, we figured it was fate, so here's this year's second bonus track. Enjoy it very much, please and thank you.
