Random Cover Song: The Offspring – “Territorial Pissings” (Nirvana)

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.

To celebrate the birthday of rock icon Kurt Cobain, who would have turned 45 today, one of the awesomest song covers we have for you is The Offspring doing a cover of Nirvana’s “Territorial Pissings”, which they played live at least once or twice back in 1998. You can check out the cover and compare it to the original here. The original is from Nirvana’s 1991 iconic album Nevermind, while The Offspring’s version was only played live and no studio version has ever existed.
