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 song comes from The Queers and their rendition of “Unsatisfied,” written by The Replacements. The original version appeared on The Replacements iconic 1984 album, Let It Be, while The Queers recorded their version for the 2006 compilation album, We’ll Inherit the Earth: A Tribute to The Replacements.
You can listen to both versions of “Unsatisfied” below.
