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.
The random song cover we have for you today is Sublime covering the Descendents song “Hope.” The original song appears on the Descendents’ classic 1982 debut album “Milo Goes To College,” while Sublime’s version appears on their 1992 debut album “40oz. To Freedom.” Listen to both the original and the cover here.
