Trampled by Turtles make their second appearance on The AV Club's Undercover with their version of Yes' "Owner of a Lonely Heart."

Lead singer Dave Simonett admits to not liking the song at first, because it was overplayed on the radio when he was a kid. Going from a prog rock hit to a folk jam is a huge leap, but Trampled by Turtles nailed it. One of the most notable parts of the cover was the breakdown. The synth and guitar parts from the original song translate well onto the fiddle, banjo, and mandolin. Classic rock stations may have drilled this song into our heads, but Trampled by Turtles gives it new life.

To pick up the group's newest album, Wild Animals, go to Amazon.
