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.
This week we’re focusing on a cover done by a one man punk band that has made punk cover songs his specialty. Batching It has a whole slue of great renditions done of songs popular in the 90’s, but given the recent hype around Weezer’s “Blinkerton” Tour we thought it fitting to feature his cover of “No One Else” off Weezer’s 1994 “Blue” album. Give it a listen here.
To check out more of Batching It’s covers head to their MySpace page where you can download his entire album “Homage” for free.
