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 entry is a pretty interesting one. Back in the year 2000, long-since-defunct San Jose punk band Boy Kicks Girl recorded a cover of “My Right” for a Screeching Weasel tribute project that apparently never got off the ground. The track had never seen the light of day…until now! Check it out below, and compare it to the original.
“My Right” appeared in its original form on Screeching Weasel’s 1988 release, “Boogadaboogadaboogada!”
