One Direction Covered Blondie and the Undertones

By Hazel Cills

Yesterday, super-cute British boy brigade One Direction released a single in support of the charity Comic Relief. The song is a mash-up of Blondie's "One Way or Another" and The Undertones' "Teenage Kicks," and we can't help but love the fact that the 1D crew took a new-wave hit about stalking in the name of love and a punk classic about needing some serious teenage lovin' and mixed it together (with a dash of trademark homoeroticism --no comment on that shower scene) to make a bright, fizzy pop concoction. Some music snobs may cringe, but, come on, this is such a fun little song. Check out the video above, featuring a cameo from British prime minister David Cameron.
