We knew that putting a GWAR song on the Undercover list would present a big challenge, because who wants to mess with a band that has developed such a strong following ‘round here and whose songs are so closely linked to their presentation? But we talked Undercover alum Sam Beama.k.a. Iron And Wine—into making a special trip to Chicago to play “Sick Of You,” which he chose from the band’s vast catalog (and made his own, as you’ll see).

In one of the latest artists to stop by and cover a song for their “Undercover” series, which features artists selecting songs to cover from a list. you can watch Sam Beam reinterpret GWAR‘s “Sick of You” as a folk song. (Make sure you stick around until the end, when he gets a very special visitor.)
