Jim Adkins Talks Jimmy Eat World's Taylor Swift Cover and Damage's New Single

Jimmy Eat World's new album, "Damage," is all about breakups and heartache, so a cover of Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" made perfect sense for the band -- especially when they could add a hard-rock touch to the track. The band has been playing the song on recent tour dates and filmed a web exclusive of a live performance this week for Conan.

Jimmy Eat World singer Jim Adkins called in from a beach vacation to talk about the cover, new album, and just what he thinks of Swifty, who he played with when she hit Jobing.com Arena and asked him to join her on-stage for a performance of JEW's "The Middle." Catch the band when it hits Marquee Theatre Sunday, September 29.
