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 NJ’s The Bouncing Souls, and their take on Avoid One Thing’s “Lean On Sheena”. The song originally appeared on Avoid One Thing’s 2002 album, Avoid One Thing, while The Bouncing Souls released their version as a single from 2006’s The Gold Album.
