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 courtesy of Wyoming’s Teenage Bottlerocket, covering The Dead Milkmen‘s “Dean’s Dream”. The original version of the song appeared on The Dead Milkmen’s debut album Big Lizard in My Backyard in 1985, while Teenage Bottlerocket’s cover appeared on the band’s split EP with Broadway Calls in 2008.
You can listen to both the original and the cover of “Dean’s Dream” below.
