Random Cover Song: Whiskeytown covers Black Flag classic “Nervous Breakdown”

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.

Today it’s Ryan Adams’ former band, Whiskeytown, doing a country/folk version of the Black Flag classic “Nervous Breakdown.” Check out the cover and compare it to the original here.
