Random Cover Song Thursday: Mad Caddies cover the ABBA song “S.O.S.”

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.

This week it’s Reggae/Ska-punk rockers, Mad Caddies covering the song “S.O.S.” originally performed by the 70’s Swedish pop group ABBA. Check out the cover and compare it to the original right here.

The cover song appears on their 2000 EP “The Holiday Has Been Canceled“ which was released on Fat Wreck Chords. The original version appears on ABBA’s 1975 self-titled album.  In my opinion The Mad Caddies pulled off an awesome cover! It’s a hysterically weird cover choice though.
