The AV Club's Undercover series sees bands choosing from a predetermined list of cover songs and performing them in the AV Club offices. Sometimes, they're delightfully mismatched, like the time GWAR covered Billy Ocean, but this time, The Men picked a tune that's right in their wheelhouse.

"Gates of Steel" from Devo's classic 1980 album, Freedom of Choice, gets a gritty makeover from the Brooklyn band. The original's clean, robotic charm is traded for The Men's raucous sloppiness, but it's an excellent translation that they've been playing live for years. Watch video of the tune in the player above.

The Men's latest album, Tomorrow's Hits, was released this year on Sacred Bones, and you can stream the whole thing for free right here at Zumic.
