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 we have a cover of the song “Alcohol,” by the too-often-forgotten Boston hardcore band Gang Green. The cover comes from Frankfurt, Germany thrash-y metal band Tankard. Click here to listen to the original and the cover..
