Taking Back Sunday Covers Kanye West
Every Monday, Billboard.com puts out a new cover for their weekly Mashup Mondays. This Monday veteran rockers, Adam Lazzara and John Nolan of Taking Back Sunday cover Kanye West’s major hit, ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing.’ The two do an awesome job of making the song their own as they go acoustic with the cover.
Lazzara admits that TBS are “big fans of Kanye West,” and that they first thought about covering more recent chart-topper, ‘Monster’ featuring other rap royalty, Jay-Z and Nicki Minaj. Instead they decided to add a one line homage to Ms. Minaj at the end of their simplified rendition of ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing.’
TBS just dropped their self-titled fifth studio album, which is the first release with John & Shaun Cooper back in the group.
Check out a video of TBS performing the cover live in their hometown of Long Island.
