Why bust out Harvey Danger’s awesome 1998 track “Flagpole Sitta” for the A.V. Undercover? “I fucking love that song,” proclaimed Deer Tick’s John McCauley. “And I definitely saw Harvey Danger live.” (Hey, so did we!) The shaggy New England rockers provide a charmingly loose take on the neatly buttoned power-pop tune, and McCauley throws in a genuinely ecstatic fist pump at the 3:24 mark.
