Random Cover/Fun Factoid: [spunge] (UK ska/punk) only band ever to get permission to alter Bob Marley songs

If you had to guess off the top of your head who is the only band/artist in music history to receive official permission to play and change the lyrics to any Bob Marley song, what would you say? Pepper, maybe? Sublime? Possibly The Expendables?

Well, it’s none of those. It’s an English ska/punk band called [spunge] (the brackets are so the letters don’t fall out, according to frontman Alex Copeland). The band played their version of “No Woman, No Cry” for Ziggy Marley, who liked it so much that he gave them unprecedented permission of releasing it with their altered lyrics.

The song then appeared on the band’s 2000 album “Room For Abuse.” Also on the album is a cover of the famous Sublime song “Santeria.” Check out both versions of “No Woman, No Cry” here, alone with both versions of “Santeria” here.
