Random Cover Song: The Offspring – “Sin City” (AC/DC)

Posted by ChrisDude on Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 8:34 PM (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 the legendary O.C. punk band The Offspring covering “Sin City”, originally by the iconic Australian hard rock band AC/DC. The original is taken from AC/DC’s 1978 album Powerage, while The Offspring’s cover version appears as a b-side to their 2001 single “Million Miles Away”.

You can listen to both versions of “Sin City” below.
