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.
Since this is our first week doing this little feature peace we’re going to make it a double whammy. This week’s cover is Rancid doing a live performance of Green Day’s song “Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)” which then transitions seamlessly into a cover of Social Distortion‘s “Story Of My Life”. Pretty great quality video too. Check it out here.
