Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.
Today’s cover comes from Rancid, tackling Sick of It All‘s “My Life”. The original is taken from Sick of It All’s 1989 debut album Blood, Sweat, and No Tears, while Rancid’s version comes from the 1997 compilation, Ten Years Later.
You can listen to both versions of “My Life” below.
