Me First and the Gimme Gimmes - Straight Up (Paula Abdul Cover)

What's that you say? There's new music from the greatest punk cover band in the history of the world. Well it looks like today just got a whole lot better. And that is due in part to Me First and the Gimme Gimmes releasing a new cover of Paula Abdul's "Straight Up" along with the announcement of a new album Are We Not Men? We Are Diva! due out May 13th. This isn't the first time Paula Abdul's pieces have been tickled by the punk community as witnessed by the classic Punk Goes 80's compilation album in which punk rockers Halifax took their licks at Paula's "Straight Up" themselves. I'll let you be the judge as to who does it best, but we all Paula's wins by a mile and it's not even neccesarily close.
