Listen to Superchunk's Freshly Re-Released 2010 B-Side "February Punk"

Superchunk are releasing Misfits & Mistakes: Singles, B-sides & Strays 2007–2023 — which is, as its title suggests, a collection of 50 rarities and B-sides spanning the band's last 16 years — on October 27. Today, we get a taste of those strays with "February Punk." 

"February Punk" was the B-side of 2010's Majesty Shredding's lead single "Digging for Something," and it's now available to hear unbound from the original 7-inch's 1,000 copies. The song is a bright and energetic bounce-along banger, and it's unsurprisingly great. 

"It's about it never being too late to get into cool stuff," Mac McCaughan said of "February Punk" in a statement. The song "helped us find new space and depth in our sound that we hadn't had before without losing the energy the songs used to have," he continued. 
Misfits & Mistakes features non-album tracks, demos and cover songs pulled from 7-inches, compilations and previously internet-exclusive artifacts. Featuring extensive liner notes by McCaughan (with additional notes from Laura Ballance), the collection tells the story of each release, from why they chose to cover songs by the Misfits, the Cure, Destiny's Child and Bananarama, to working with their various collaborators.
