The Dead Milkmen Cover Heaven 17

It's been far too long since we've heard from The Dead Milkmen, but luckily they're back with an unfortunately timely cover of Heaven 17's 1981 Margaret Thatcher/Ronald Reagan era song "(We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang." This is another song I was completely unfamiliar with, but I'll obviously listen to anything The Dead Milkmen put out. It's an impossibly groovy cover, bordering on ska and it's the most danceable song they've put out since reuniting. Despite being a song about fascists that drips with justifiable anger, it's somehow a complete blast of a song.

You can listen to The Dead Milkmen take on "(We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang" below. The song is available digitally and as a 7" via The Giving Groove. The first pressing sold out a while back, but you can get a copy of the second pressing here. For more on The Dead Milkmen, check out their website.
