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 Toronto hardcore punks The New Enemy and their cover of 88 Fingers Louie‘s “State”. The original version appeared on 88 Fingers Louie’s 1998 album Back On The Streets, while the The New Enemy’s version appears on their 2014 EP “Evolve To Destroy”
You can listen to both versions of “State” below.
