Wow, talk about an unexpected cover… Ted Leo and band run through the Tears for Fears classic “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”. Can’t say Leo really has the vocal pipes for the song, but it’s a fun trip back to an old rock standard. This is from a new AV Club video series. It’s sponsored by Starbucks, so I suppose some James Taylor tunes will turn up at some point.
