A video of Me First and the Gimme Gimmes playing a brand new cover of Paula Abdul’s “Straight Up” live during a recent show in Barcelona, Spain, has made its way online and you can check it out below.
You may notice that Bad Religion bassist Jay Bentley is on stage and Fat Mike seems to be missing… well, that’s because Bentley has been filling in for Mike on this tour and is apparently a part-time Gimme now!
This cover will be appearing on Me First and the Gimme Gimmes’ upcoming diva-themed album, which they recently finished recording. The band’s last release was 2011’s “Sing In Japanese” EP, released through Fat Wreck Chords.
