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 MySpace and Spin have been kicking out Bad Religion cover songs by different bands every day for the last week we thought we’d throw our own BR cover into the mix. This week’s random cover is the original Sublime doing Bad Religion’s “We’re Only Gonna Die” off their 1982 album “How Could Hell Be Any Worse?”. I think it’s pretty awesome. Check out Sublime’s version and compare it to the original right here.
