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 song comes from Teenage Bottlerocket and their cover version of “Henchman”, written by The Go-Go’s. The original version is taken from Bad Religion‘s classic 1989 album No Control, while Teenage Bottlerocket’s version appears on their 2011 EP Mutilate Me.
You can listen to both versions of “Henchman” below.
