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 The Offspring, performing their take on The B-52’s “52 Girls”. The song was originally released on The B-52’s self-titled 1979 album, while The Offspring version was included on the 1991 cassette compilation Contains No Caffeine.
