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?
