Random Cover Song: Descendents cover “Wendy” (Beach Boys)

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 the legendary Descendents covering the song “Wendy”, originally by the equally legendary (in their own right) Beach Boys. The Beach Boys released the song on the 1964 album All Summer Long, while the Descendents released their cover on the 1986 album Enjoy!. 

You can listen to both versions here.
