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.
Tonight’s cover comes from Pennywise, who covered the Sick of It All classic “My Life” on Our Impact Will Be Felt, a 2007 tribute album by various artists dedicated to the iconic New York hardcore band. The original version of “My Life” is taken from Sick of It All’s 1989 classic debut album Blood, Sweat and No Tears.
You can listen to both versions of “My Life” below.
