Watch J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr., Robby Takac of Goo Goo Dolls, Members of ALL and Goldfinger Cover The Replacements’ “Favorite Thing”News • September 16, 2020 • mxdwn Music
J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr., Robby Takac of Goo Goo Dolls, Chad Price of ALL, Darrin Pfeiffer of Goldfinger and Mikey Hawdon of Inner City Surfers have joined together to perform a socially-distanced cover of the Replacements’ “Favorite Thing.” The cover comes as part of Hawdon’s YouTube cover series, “Mikey and His Uke,” where Hawdon plays his ukulele and is joined by members of various punk bands.
“The very first song I ever heard by the Replacements was ‘Bastards Of Young’ when I was 15 years old,” Hawdon said in the video’s description. “The iconic video came on TV and was forever ingrained in my memory, and is still one of my favorite songs ever. Years later I got their ‘Stink’ EP and really enjoyed it, but when I heard the album ‘Let It Be,’ I fell full in love with The Replacements. From start to finish, this album is incredible. It was hard to pick which song to cover.”
