Band slipped cover version into their set at Cleveland gig this week

Sleater-Kinney have covered the Ramones’ ‘Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight)’ in the run up to the festive period.

The band are currently on tour in America and played the House Of Blues venue in Cleveland, Ohio on Wednesday (December 9) where they played the cover of the Ramones’ 1989 original. See below to watch fan shot footage of the performance now.

Sleater-Kinney released their new album ‘No Cities To Love’ in January. It was the band’s first release in a decade.

Sleater-Kinney released seven albums between 1995 and 2005, with their self-titled debut album being followed by ‘Call The Doctor’, ‘Dig Me Out’, ‘The Hot Rock’, ‘All Hands On The Bad One’, ‘One Beat’ and ‘The Woods’.

Meanwhile, Carrie Brownstein‘s memoir Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl was released in October.

The musician and Portlandia star previously spoke to NME about the book, confirming that “it pretty much ends with Sleater-Kinney going on hiatus, and a little bit of leading on from that. But it doesn’t even really go onto Portlandia“.
