    One Direction are gonna getcha, getcha, getcha! The British-Irish boy band will cover Blondie's 1978 single "One Way Or Another" for Comic Relief. One Direction doing Blondie? Oh, this, we have to hear. They will do wonders with the nu wave classic.

    According to the NME.com, 1D will record the official song for the 2013 charity campaign and will perform the song live on the BBC's "Red Nose Day" coverage on Friday, March 31.

    1D member (and Taylor Swift's boyfriend) Harry Styles said, "We have grown up with Comic Relief and taken part in lots of Red Nose Days at school so we were thrilled to be asked to do this year's Red Nose Day single. It's such an honor for us. We can't wait to perform our version of this iconic pop song and raise as much money as possible for this incredibly important cause that is really close to our hearts."

    Are you excited about One Direction covering Blondie? Do you think they will breathe new life into it? Or do you fear they might butcher it? We think that latter is not possible.
