This little gem is a fantastic fine. Ben Gibbard frontman of Death Cab For Cutie has uploaded to social a simply beautiful cover of the of Minor Threat track “Filler.” Led by piano, it’s a fantastic take on what is a monster of a song otherwise.
“Filler” was featured on Minor Threat’s self-titled debut EP, and Gibbard explained that he had covered the track only once before.
He said via SoundCloud: “I covered this only once at a solo show in D.C. in 2012,” Gibbard writes on SoundCloud. “I felt like recording and sharing it today. enjoy. xo Ben”
In a reversal, in February this year Halsey and YUNGBLUD covered the Death Cab For Cutie track “I Will Follow You Into The Dark.”
