Alan Vega of the pioneering punk group Suicide passed away last weekend, and today MGMT, one of the countless bands influenced by Vega's music, released a cover of Vega's solo track "Goodbye Darling" as a tribute to the icon. The bittersweet themes of the song are heightened by the circumstances of the cover's release, but MGMT quite rightly refuse to make such a jubilant song the least bit morose. It's a celebration of life with scratchy synths and singalongs. Listen below.
