We wouldn't have guessed that New Jersey's mighty Titus Andronicus would tackle They Might Be Giants 1990 quirk-pop classic "Birdhouse In Your Soul," but apparently they're big fans of the song. Of course, they didn't give "Birdhouse" a particular straight reading: They start by sampling Charles Bukowski's "Bluebird" before careening into the song. If you don't already own last year's The Monitor--one of The A.V. Club's favorites of 2010--you should remedy that post-haste. Watch for contemplative Rodney at 1:58. Enjoy!
