Watch David Byrne drop an amazing Biz Markie cover

Continuing his life-long trend of being awesome, Talking Heads frontman David Byrne covered Biz Markie's classic "Just a Friend" this week to prove a point about dodgy copyright law.

The performance was part of a benefit concert for the Content Creators Coalition, an advocacy group concerned with ensuring artists get the royalties they deserve. Sure, this performance isn't as good as Stop Making Sense, but hey, it's still David Byrne talk-warbling a fun song. Oh, and he did it while wearing overalls. --Jon Terbush
