Cover, B-Sides and Rarities: The Strokes (Pt. 2)

For the second week of 'Strokes Rarities', here's a cover made by the band, of Guided By Voices' 'A Salty Salute', during 2004. This is one of the covers sung by the band that I don't generally hear very often, though I have heard the original version before in Strokes tour documentary, In Transit. It became one of the many songs they played when they're out on the road, while not on stage performing - so now we know how they select what songs to cover.
