Ramones Cover on Gossip Girl

I'm not afraid to admit that Gossip Girl is one of my all-time favorite shows. It includes so many of my favorite things like:

Gossip:



Drama:



And most importantly, headbands:



On last week's episode of Gossip Girl, Jenny Humphrey decided to have a guerrilla fashion show at a benefit (why??) and despite the fact that her dresses looked straight out of Valley Girl, (honestly, no one ever needs that much tulle), it did bring us a sweet new jam. Thurston Moore (of Sonic Youth) and Jemina Pearl (of the now-defunct Be Your Own Pet) recorded a cover of Sheena is a Punk Rocker by The Ramones. It's not a great cover, I was expecting something so much cooler, much like the Sonic Youth cover of Superstar by The Carpenters. Here's the mp3 of both for you to compare. The Ramones cover is not great quality because it is a tv rip, but it's enough for sampling purposes.
