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 Tom May, co-vocalist and guitarist of The Menzingers covering Rancid‘s “Corazon de Oro”. The original is taken from Rancid’s 1998 album Life Won’t Wait, while May’s solo acoustic cover comes from the PV Undercover compilation.
You can listen to both versions of “Corazon de Oro” below.
