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 former Bomb the Music Industry! and The Arrogant Sons of Bitches front-man, Jeff Rosenstock, covering “Neon Gray” originally by Night Birds. The original version of the song appeared on Night Birds’ 2011 debut album, The Other Side of Darkness, while Rosenstock’s cover seem to be, like most Rosenstock covers, done just for fun by himself.
(Neon Gray begins around 1:11)
