Random Cover Song: Jawbreaker – “You Don’t Know What You’ve Got” (Joan Jett and the Blackhearts)

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.

Today’s cover comes from 90′s punk staples Jawbreaker, tackling “You Don’t Know What You’ve Got” by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. The original version of the song appeared on Jett’s debut solo album, Bad Reputation in 1981 (initially released as Joan Jett in 1980), while Jawbreaker’s cover first appeared on the Chesterfield King EP, before being reissued on CD versions of Bivouac (both in 1992).

You can listen to both versions below.

Mark Hoppus: Blink-182 are going through “a friendly divorce” with Tom DeLonge

So it appears that the inevitable welcome or unwelcome (depending on your perspective) news is finally upon us: Tom DeLonge is gone from the Blink-182 camp, and isn’t exactly on his way back.

In a recent interview with the Das Process podcast, Blink bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus confirmed that the remaining two-thirds of the band were going through a “friendly divorce with (their) former guitarist.” Hoppus added: “hopefully things clear up and it doesn’t get all manager-y and lawyer-y and all that and we can move forward.” You can check out the rest of the interview here.

It would appear that this would pave the way for DeLonge’s recent replacement, Alkaline Trio‘s Matt Skiba (pictured above with Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker) to take a more official role in what would, in many ways, become a sort of supergroup. Stay tuned.

Readers’ Choice: 14 Punk Rock Love Songs You Should Listen To This Valentine’s Day

Yesterday, we posted a list of punk-ish (I say ‘punk-ish’ because some of the stuff wasn’t really what one would call ‘punk’…cough cough New Found Glory cough) love songs that have been released within the past year in honor of Valentine’s Day. And as always, those who don’t care to read that ever-so-long paragraph describing the list left outraged comments about how we didn’t include (insert name of 20-year-old song here). So I thought it’d be wise to give you ladies and gents what you obviously want and compile a list of songs people bitched at us for not including, despite the fact that they didn’t meet said list’s criteria.

Check it out below, and try not to bitch too much about how we left out one of the 20 Jawbreaker songs you wanted. Also, have a merry Valentine’s Day.
