Bob Mould gets in on Undercover 2011

I’m digging how they gays are representing (even if by accident) inĀ  A.V. Club’s Undercover 2011 project. In June, I posted this item where bands covered George Michael and the Indigo Girls. Last week, Bob Mould jumped in and covered, well, himself. He performed “If I Can’t Change Your Mind” by his old band Sugar. Watch it here.

Mould has major cred with Sugar and his first band Husker Du. He still rocks it solo, but you might recall he’s also one-half of Blowout, the DJ team that served up the music at this year’s BearDance.

And if you just want a little more Mould, check out the great interview he did on Sound Opinions last month.

WATCH: Bob Mould on Fallon last night

If you were at the Big D Bear Dance this past spring, you got to bathe in the greatness that is Bob Mould. He’s one half of the Blowout DJ team that spun the tunes for all those grizzlies and polars and what not. But he’s more famous for his role in alt-rock bands Husker Du and (a personal fave) Sugar, as well as his solo career. On top of that, with all that he’s done in music in a variety of guises, he’s also the least affected music star I’ve ever had the privilege to chat with.

He tells all about his life in music and coming out in his brand new autobio See A Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody released just last week.

Anyway, he seemed to randomly appear last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. He and The Roots (Fallon’s house band) performed a cover of Sugar’s “If I Can’t Change Your Mind.” Mould has a husky voice to begin with, but I was bummed that he sounded a bit off yesternight.
