The band explained the choice of covering the song from 2001's Relationship Of Command to Absolutepunk
Check out the cover here.
Basically, I had a strange glitchy electronic song, that I sent over to Justin, just in case he ended up with some ideas for it. He found himself singing the ATDI melody over the song, and brought up the idea of just making it a cover. We never actually changed my original structure of the song, and we just fit the lyrics and melody over the top of it. The last thing you want to do while covering such an iconic band, is do something wrong.
