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 Cheap Girls covering “New Madrid” by Uncle Tupelo. The original is taken from Uncle Tupelo’s 1993 album Anodyne, while Cheap Girls’ acoustic cover comes from the PV Undercover compilation.
You can listen to both versions of “New Madrid” below.
