Random Cover Song: Kemuri – “Time Bomb” (Rancid)

Posted by bob9746 on Friday, October 31, 2014 at 9:30 AM (PST)

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 Japanese ska-punk act Kemuri, and their cover of Rancid’s tune “Time Bomb”. The original version appeared on the classic Rancid album “…And Out Come The Wolves”, while Kemuri’s version appeared off their 2014 covers album “Kemurified”.

You can listen to both versions of “Time Bomb” below.

I’ve never heard of Red Kap before but they appear to be some sort of clothing line and for whatever reason they did a pretty cool little “behind the scenes” video with Social Distortion frontman and guitarist Mike Ness.  Make him look like some all American badass really.  Check it out below.

Ness recently revealed that Social Distortion plans to be back in the studio a couple days a week to work on their anticipated new album, which he hopes will be released next year. He also revealed that he has been working on a solo album, which will be his first since 1999′s Under the Influences.

Social Distortion last released Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes through Epitaph Records in 2011.

The foursome has already recorded their debut EP and you can get your first taste of it in the form of a new track titled “Oh God.”  Stream it below and let us know what you think.
