Today's 5 O'Clock Shadow is one that can be immediately filed under "bittersweet moments." Grab some tissues. This one is a tearjerker.

In an homage to bassist and occasional singer Robert Been's late father, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club decided to cover the Call's "Let the Day Begin." Michael Been was the leader singer of the Call and mentor to the band before he suffered a fatal heart attack while working the sound booth at a Black Rebel Motorcycle Club show in 2010.

Take a listen to the two tracks below and grab the free download of BRMC's version from their website.
