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 Florida’s finest Evergreen Terrace, who covered the Operation Ivy classic “Knowledge”. The original is taken from Operation Ivy’s 1989 iconic album Energy, while the Evergreen Terrace’s version appears on their 2004 covers album Writer’s Block.
You can listen to both versions of “Knowledge” below.
