Your cure for the post-Labor Day blues, during which you likely worked, and a crop-topped salute to the end of summer 2016: Louisiana favorites Brass Bed doing their best Sammy Hagar impression — which sounds not unlike the Feelies adding another cover to their pile — for Van Halen's maligned cheeseball anthem "Why Can't This Be Love" for The AV Club's annual A.V. Undercover series.

Under the jump, why the band chose the song from the list (answer: "to take a Van Halen song and take all the chest hair off it") and the story behind the groan-worthy line "only time will tell if we stand the test of time."
