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. This week it’s Orange County melodic hardcore act Ignite covering New York hardcore legends Sick of it All‘s song “Cease Fire”.
Listen to both versions here.
The original appears Sick of it All’s album “Scratch The Surface”. The covers appears on the 2007 Sick of it All tribute album entitled “Our Impact will be Felt”.
