The Ergs! stream no wave cover of “My Sharona”

As announced earlier this week, New Jersey pop punk band The Ergs! reunited for a recent taping of The Chris Gethard Show, and that they will continue playing together for this year’s FEST in Gainesville, Florida. Lead vocalist / drummer Mikey Erg (who will be releasing a solo album this summer) recently sat down with Noisey to discuss how the reunion came to be, where he also released a stream of a “new” song by The Ergs!. The song in question is a cover of The Knack’s “My Sharona,” although it’s played in a no wave style, thus adopting the new title “No Sharona.”

You can stream the song below, and read the interview with Erg here.

The Ergs! broke up in 2008 and released a rarities comp, Hindsight is 20/20, My Friend Vol 1 in the same year.

Random Cover Song: The Ergs! – “Linus and Lucy” (Vince Guaraldi Trio)

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 Ergs! and their rendition of “Linus and Lucy,” written by Vince Guaraldi and performed by The Vince Guaraldi Trio. The original version was written by Guaraldi in 1964 and is best known as the de facto theme song to the Peanuts animated specials based on Charles Schultz’s cartoon strip of the same name, the song even being named after the van Pelt siblings from the strip. The Ergs! released their cover on their 2008 b-sides and rarities compilation, Hindsight is 20/20, My Friend.

You can listen to both versions of “Linus and Lucy” below.

His picks range from punk legends like Naked Raygun and the Bush Testras, to pop stars like Madonna and Stevie Wonder, and a number of artists you’ve probably better heard of in between (including one who had Simpsons/Futurama creator Matt Groening do their cover art).
