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 comes from The Vandals, who covered the Alice Cooper classic “Poison”. Their cover version of “Poison” is taken from the 1993 compilation album Welcome to Our Nightmare: A Tribute to Alice Cooper, a tribute album by various artists dedicated to iconic singer. The original is taken from Alice Cooper’s 1989 album Trash.
You can listen to both versions of “Poison” below.
