Music Monday: Pumped Up Kicks


A while back, we did a Music Monday post that included a shout out to Foster The People and their now very popular song, “Pumped Up Kicks.” Ever since I listened to it, I’ve had the track playing daily in my office.

I normally move through new music pretty quickly (especially when it comes to the crazy popular stuff), but there’s just something about this track’s beat that gets to me and always ensures a good day ahead. That’s why when I stumbled across a few versions of the song, I couldn’t help but share.

First and foremost, here’s a video featuring photos perfectly synced with the song. It was published on September 15th and already has over 2 million views.

And now, below are 3 covers worth listening to if you’re a fan of Foster The People.

1) The Kooks

2) Weezer

3) Shout out to former LAS writer JLand for this find:

POLL: Which of these 3 is the best?

What about you guys? What do you have on repeat right now?

I've dedicated my career to LaxAllStars since 2010, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I now live in my hometown of Boise, Idaho, with my wife Zoë, two dogs, and a baby girl expected to arrive around Championship Weekend this May. I'm a technologist at heart, I'm not into snow or the month of January, and one time I kind of stole a football from Gary Gait. Life is crazy busy, but it's worth it when you get to immerse yourself in the medicine of lacrosse every day. We are on a mission to Grow The Game® on a global scale by empowering storytelling by players, for players, and bridging the gap between lacrosse and the mainstream.
