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.
Tonight, we’ve got Glue Gun, who had reunited two years ago, covering the Angry Samoans classic “Gas Chamber”. The song was originally released on the Angry Samoans’ classic 1982 album Back from Samoa, while Glue Gun’s cover version of it is taken from the 1996 Fearless Records compilation album Punk Bites. Both versions of “Gas Chamber” can be checked out here.
