Random Cover Song: Big Drill Car – “Freedom of Choice” (Devo)

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, it’s occasionally-reunited California pop punk rockers Big Drill Car covering Devo’s “Freedom of Choice”. The original appears on Devo’s 1980 album of the same title, while Big Drill Car’s version appears on their 1991 long-out of print second album Batch. Check out the cover of “Freedom of Choice” and compare it to the original here.
