Random Cover Song Thursday: The Offspring – “Killboy Powerhead” (The Didjits)

Random Cover Song Thursday: The Offspring – “Killboy Powerhead” (The Didjits)

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 The Offspring frontman Dexter Holland, who turns 46 today, one of the awesomest song covers we have for you is the multi-platinum O.C. punk rockers covering the Didjits‘ “Killboy Powerhead”. You can check out the cover and compare it to the original here. The original is from the Didjits’ 1990 album Hornet Pinata, while The Offspring’s version appears on their 1994 iconic album Smash.
