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 Carnist. They’re a London-based hardcore punk four piece, and they’ve taken on the NUFAN classic “On The Outside.” The original is from No Use’s 1997 album “Making Friends,” while the cover appears on Carnist’s 2013 album “Unlearn.”
