    Covering the Byrds, this was released in 1984 as a non-album single. Support Kevin and Drive Time and all the music you won't here anywhere else but KEXP! https://www.kexp.org/spring-2023-drive/?next=%2F

    Roger McGuinn encouraged David Crosby to weigh in on Husker Du's cover of The Byrds' clasic. David Crosby tweeted, "Didn't get me." -- This article, however, says the cover is "a blistering attack on the philosophical failure of a previous generation’s subculture and a landmark recording in the life of an important and influential underground band.": https://bit.ly/3kq9UxP

    Cover of the classic Byrds song, which is often credited as the first bona fide psychadelic pop song. "Eight Miles High" was released as a non-album single in April 1984. In a 2019 interview with Stereogum, Bob Mould talked about the track, saying, "Everything we did in the studio, basic tracks, was first take. We did not want to use one of the songs from the album as a warm up track. We would jam a little. We had to do something, so that was the first song. We did that, and I did vocals right away to warm up. It's a pretty crazy vocal take. It became this calling card, at the moment, for the band, coming out right before 'Zen Arcade'." https://bit.ly/3fW1YhI
