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 weeks cover is So-Cal punkers Chaser doing a cover of Dust in the Wind which was originally performed by the classic rock group Kansas. I really like this cover because it’s a rather unconventional song for a punk band to cover. Usually punk bands cover people within their genre but not this time. They did a great job with this cover. Check it out for yourself here.
The cover song appeared on the band’s debut full-length album Numb America which was released in 2006 on Felony Records. Their latest album The Big Picture was released February 16, 2010 on Drop Anchor! Entertainment.
