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 Jughead’s Revenge (who are apparently now known as Jugg’s Revenge) with their rendition of The Cars classic “Just What I Needed”. The cover is from Jughead’s Revenge’s last album Pearly Gates, which came out back in 1999, while the original appeared on The Cars’ 1978 self-titled debut album. You can listen to the cover and compare it to the original here.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yFq-pO2D58[/youtube]
