If you listen to me weekdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on ROCK 92.9, you know I’m a big fan of cover songs. I want to know what you think of this one.
Canadian indie rockers Nap Eyes recently released a take on one of Green Day‘s biggest hits: “When I Come Around.” The thing is, they slowed it waaaaay down and made it all twangy. Personally, I dig when an artist takes a cover and makes it their own. What’s the sense of covering a song if your version sounds the same as the original?
So I’m on board. Give it a look and a listen and let me know if you are, too.
