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 Spain’s melodic punk act Minority of One, tackling Face to Face’s “Disconnected”. The original appeared on Face to Face’s 1992 album, Don’t Turn Away and was also re-recorded as a bonus track for 1994’s Big Choice. Minority of One’s cover appeared on their 2012 EP South West Coast.
You can listen to both versions of “Disconnected” below.
