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 Ataris and their cover of one of Skid Row’s famous hits ”I Remember You”. The original version of the song first appeared on the Skid Row’s self-titled debut album from 1989, and The Ataris’ version is taken from the 2000 tribute album Punk Goes Metal.
You can listen to both versions of the song below.
