Pop ETC, formerly known as The Morning Benders, have released a brilliant cover of Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down” and is a reminder of just how iconic the original 1989 song is.
This version of the song is stripped down, guitar heavy version of the original. It’s a perfect combination of the original acoustic tone while including POP ETC’s signature synthesized sound. Pop ETC previously covered Chris Isaak’s song “Wicked Game” and Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know” back in 2012.
POP ETC is an indie rock band from Berkeley, California. The band has released 7 EP’s and 3 studio albums so far not including their upcoming untitled album.
Previously, POP ETC released an 80s-centric music video to their track “Running in Circles“, which will be featured on the bands latest LP. No dates or album title has been released yet. You can preview the track below:
