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 the legendary NYHC band Sick of It All covering the Minor Threat classic “Betray”. The original is taken from Minor Threat’s 1983 iconic album Out of Step, while Sick of It All’s cover version appears on their 1991 EP We Stand Alone.
You can listen to both versions of “Betray” below.
