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’s cover comes from Carbondale, IL’s The Copyrights and their cover version of The Rolling Stones’ “Dead Flowers”. The original version is taken from The Rolling Stones’ 1971 album Sticky Fingers, while The Copyrights’ version was first released on a two song 7-inch for the Art Of The Underground Single Series in 2009, and later included on the band’s 2012 compilation album Shit’s Fucked.
You can listen to both versions of “Dead Flowers” below.
