Yay or Nay: The Kooks covers Peter Bjorn & John's hit tune

You've probably heard this song , "Young Folks" before, even without knowing whose song it is. It's the Swedish rock band, Peter Bjorn and John,  who composed this alluring tune. This song reminds me of  good old days when I used to work at GAP.  The closing chain had such a fun in-store playlists, including Feist's "Feel it All" and Phoenix's "Listomania".

It seems that this song is not only favored by GAP. This song has been covered by a number of artists. ( Click here to check out various covers of this song via Hype Machine). I picked my favorite cover of the tune. The Brit pop rock band, the Kooks covered it for 2008 NME Awards.


Would you say Yay or Nay for this cover!? Let us know!
