Jen Wasner (Wye Oak) has a side project called Flock of Dimes and they covered the song for The Onion AV Club

Some songs never get old and for me, “Don’t Dream It’s Over” is one of those songs. It still gets healthy airplay on countless radio stations around the world because it’s a well-written song that resonates. The Onion’s AV Club Undercover project hosted Flock of Dimes with special guests Sylvan Esso to cover this classic. I think it’s a gem of a cover.
