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 we’ve got Bouncing Souls covering “We’re Coming Back” by the iconic English punk/early oi group Cock Sparrer. The song appears off of the band’s BYO Records Split with Anti-Flag. If you haven’t heard of the BYO Split series, they feature awesome bands like NOFX, Rancid, Hot Water Music, Swingin’ Utters, and more covering each other’s (and other band’s) songs. Check out the Wiki page for a full listing of releases.
