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.
Tonight’s cover comes from BL’AST! and their cover of the Ramones classic “Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue”. The original version of the song first appeared on the Ramones’ 1976 iconic debut album, and BL’AST! recorded their version for the 1991 tribute album Gabba Gabba Hey – A Tribute to the Ramones.
You can listen to both versions of the song below.
