A.V. Undercover

Touché Amoré covers Pearl Jam’s “Corduroy”
About This Episode

It seems fitting that the post-hardcore band Touché Amoré would choose to cover Pearl Jam’s “Corduroy”—the singers in both bands love to deliver personal lyrics that cut to the bone. Touché Amoré’s latest, Stage Four, deals with the death of frontman Jeremy Bolm’s mother from cancer, and it’s a heartbreaking listen. PJ’s 1994 hit “Corduroy” doesn’t cut quite as deep, though it does take a look at the ugly side of fame. Enjoy.
