ABC/Randy HolmesRoyal Blood offered their take on The Knack‘s 1979 number-one hit “My Sharona” during their appearance on the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge Tuesday. You can watch the performance now on YouTube.
For their take on the track, Royal Blood’s Mike Kerr gives its iconic stop-start guitar riff the distorted bass treatment while Ben Thatcher wails away on the drums. The result is much heavier than the original, but should still meet all your convenience store dancing needs.
Royal Blood released their new album How Did We Get So Dark?, featuring the lead single “Lights Out,” earlier this year. The U.K. duo is touring the U.S. this fall while opening for Queens of the Stone Age.
