This ska cover is a rollicking, trombone-filled anthem.

It’s a well-known fact that the music in Steven Universe is incredible. But it also translates really well into creative covers, like this version of “The Working Dead” by Ska Tune Network.

It’s so good that Rebecca Sugar herself has given it her seal of approval.
