They Might Be Giants – “Tubthumping” (Chumbawamba cover)

I’ve been claiming for a couple of years now that Chumbawamba’s ’90s output is due for a resurgence and it looks like the rest of the world is finally catching up to that prediction. In this clip (kudos to John Sakamoto for digging it up) from the A.V. Club’s 2011 Undercover series, They Might Be Giants and a roomful of backup singers tackle “Tubthumping” and do it justice (though they should really all be holding full pints of beer).

You love this song. Stop pretending you don’t. Check out the original below:
