CHVRCHES took the Bieb’s best track and made it better.

♩ CHVRCHES – What Do You Mean (Justin Bieber cover)

Ryan Adam’s 1989 cover album got all the press, but Screaming Females rendition of Swift’s infectious “Shake It Off” deserves it. Frontwoman Marissa Paternoster’s vocals are one-of-a-kind and she fucking shreds at the 2:54 mark. You’ll either love this or hate it. I for one can’t get enough.

(p.s. If you’ve never checked out The A.V. Club’s Undercover series, what the heck are you waiting for?)

♩ Screaming Females – Shake It Off (Taylor Swift cover)

GIRLS

Chromatics – Girls Just Want to Have Dub (Cyndi Lauper cover) [from Girls Just Want to Have Dub]
