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’s cover comes from Washington D.C. metal band Darkest Hour tackling “Nazi Punks Fuck Off” by the iconic Dead Kennedys. The song originally appeared on the In God We Trust, Inc. EP released in 1981.
You can listen to both versions of the song right here.
