F*cked Up: "Walking on Sunshine (Katrina and the Waves)"

Posted June 4, 2010, 4:33 a.m. in MP3s by Jon E.

Toronto's Fucked Up have posted their cover of the Katrina & the Waves classic, "Walking on Sunshine." The band explained:

Speaking of more records, we just recorded a cover of a song called "Walking on Sunshine" by a band called "Katrina and the Waves", because they paid us $1000 to do it and also because we love sunshine (which you probably know if you were paying attention during the whole ChemCom 2007-2009 period). Then we found out that we had to give some of that money to our label. Then just now I found out that that band (minus the singer) makes a million dollars a year from royalties to that song (not even exaggerating) so really we recorded the song to make Katrina and the Waves richer I guess.

It's like a mix between the original and our own song "Crooked Head", because we realized how similar they two songs were while we were recording it at our fancy $400 and hour recording studio in Las Vegas.

Check out the song here.
