Death Cab’s Ben Gibbard covers Minor Threat’s “Filler” (listen)

Death Cab for Cutie at Eventim Apollo
Death Cab in London earlier this year (more by Christopher Jesse Juarez)

Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard did a stripped-down solo piano cover of Minor Threat‘s hardcore punk classic “Filler” in DC back in 2012, and now he decided to do a proper recording of the cover and upload it to SoundCloud. Other than the lyrics, you’d never guess it was a Minor Threat song — Ben basically turns it into something you could picture hearing on a Death Cab album. Listen below.

As mentioned, Death Cab have tons of tour dates coming up this year, including NYC and NJ shows with Jenny Lewis. All dates here.
