Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed.

Rootsy pop-punkers Against Me! might not be making many friends, but they are making some rabid new fans–the latest being former teen prodigy and ex-Claire Danes beau Ben Lee. It seems the Aussie troubadour heard AM!'s new major-label release New Wave and was so smitten with it, he decided to acoustically cover the album in its entirety (which can be streamed and downloaded here). The bad news? It sucks. The good news? It kept Lee from writing or recording his own music for at least a couple weeks.
