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.
Here’s a rare Against Me! cover not appearing on any of the band’s records, EP’s, demos, or otherwise; just one compilation album entitled “We’ll Inherit The Earth: A Tribute To The Replacements,” referring of course to the long-running Twin Cities punk band that broke up in 1991. Against Me! covered The Replacements again with Joan Jett earlier this year.
