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, we’ve got The Ataris covering “Heaven Is Falling” from the first Rock Against Bush compilation, released in 2004 by Fat Wreck Chords. Check it out here and compare it with the original, off Bad Religion’s album “Generator,” released in 1992, via Epitaph.
