Michael gets beard props from Iron & Wine singer Sam Beam.

A.V. Club’s Undercover bit is a clever one. Readers pick songs and bands come in to play them. In Undercover 2, we’re treated to an experimental rock version of Kanye West’s “Runaway” or a re-working of ’80s synth-poppers Human League. Interestingly enough, the two LGBTs on the list appeared with some rule-bending.

In A.V.’s post from Thursday, And You Will Know Us By The Trail of the Dead covered Indigo Girls’ “Blood and Fire,” which wasn’t on the original list. Apparently they “didn’t understand the rules.” Yeah, whatever, but it’s a worthy watch …
