Random Cover Song: Lapdog – “No Control” and “God Song” (Bad Religion)

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.

The random song covers we have for you tonight are Lapdog covering the Bad Religion classics “No Control” and “God Song”. “No Control” appears on Bad Religion’s seminal 1989 album No Control, while “God Song” is taken from their 1990 follow-up Against the Grain. Both of Lapdog’s cover versions appear on the 1998 Bad Religion tribute album A Tribute to Bad Religion Vol. 2. You can listen to both the original and the cover versions of “No Control” and “God Song” below.
