They Might Be Giants performed 'Bills, Bills, Bills,' the pre-'Independent Women' independent women anthem by Destiny's Child.

I have to admit that before I watched the video, I was feeling a little cynical about the whole situation. I worried the performance might be making fun of "Bills, Bills, Bills" or downplaying how good it is in its own right. I mean, this is a song that's usually sung by literally Beyoncé.

But I was worried for no reason. When will I learn that Destiny's Child doesn't need me to defend them? Hopefully, it's just one of those life lessons that becomes more ingrained the older you get, you know? Like most of the performances in the A.V. Undercover series, the band offers a new take on a classic that pays tribute to the original while being good in its own way.
