It’s not quite up there with his take on Barbra Streisand’s “Evergreen,” but John McCain’s stunning cover version of the Beach Boys’ “Barbara Ann”–in which he changes the chorus to “Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran”–could prove to be the most notable single of McCain’s career. All he needs now is John Stamos on backing bongos and an equally killer b-side (“Help Me Tehranda”?), and even Mike and Brian would settle their differences to help out with the backing melody.
