ALLISON BOHL DeHART
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."
