We just got a bulletin from Bay Area homegirls the Donnas announcing that they've got a cover of "The Safety Dance" up on their Myspace profile player (which is really rather awesome), and what's more, it's going to be in an upcoming VW commercial. Meanwhile, we present to you the video for "40 Boys in 40 Nights", which one of your Jalopnik editors appears with orange hair. And y'know, it's kind of automotive. There's a van with a Danzig sticker on it piloted by a former member of Bratmobile in there, after all. Plus, we once made out in the back of a Volvo around the corner of the club where it was filmed. Can we also take this time to announce publicly that we've had a gobsmacking, drawn-by-Dan-Clowes-dork-style crush on Donnas guitarist Allison Robertson since she hailed us to come over and chitchat during the 2000 Warped Tour in SF? Hi Allison! We're dorks! Love us!
