Fan footage of Arizona rockers Jimmy Eat World covering Taylor Swift’s 2012 hit single, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” has hit the Internet.

Clips of the band’s dynamic rendition of Swift’s song have emerged from shows in Pittsburgh and Cleveland (above).

Jimmy Eat World and Taylor Swift actually have something of a history. Back in 2011, Swift invited Jimmy Eat World frontman Jim Adkins onstage in Phoenix to perform a rendition of the band’s 2001 single, “The Middle.”

Swift isn’t the only pop singer Adkins has covered recently. Video footage from the U.K. finds the singer tackling an acoustic version of Rihanna’s “Only Girl (in the World).”

The U.S. leg of Jimmy Eat World’s 2013 tour in support of new album Damage runs through most of August, wrapping up with dates in Indianapolis (August 17) and Chicago (August 18) before the band heads over to Europe in September.

Below, watch‘s recent interview with Jimmy Eat World, in which they discuss their long history and the new album.
