Well I've heard the ska "Hotel California" and "Brown Eyed Girl". I recently heard a punk cover of "I Think We're Alone Now" but who the hell does it? It said by "The Get Up Kids" but they never did do a cover of it. Who was it? Please and Thank You.

ALSO, Post some of your favorite songs that have been punk covered.

99.9% of punk covers are deplorable pieces of trash.

Exceptions:

Gloria - Patti Smith (only a semi cover)
Banana Splits - Dickies
Can I change my Mind - Pietasters (I still like the Tyrone Davis version better)
Police and Thieves - The Clash
Showdown - New York Dolls
I Shall Be Released - The Slackers
Louie Louie - The Stooges
Black Diamond - The Replacements

Not true, Pennywise's version of "Stand by Me" was pretty damn good.

I don't know.

I'm just saying they couldn't, even IF they wanted to.


Probably, but I wouldn't second guess, they are a good band.

One of my favorite third wave covers is Come on Eileen by Save Ferris. Come to think of it, that's the only third wave cover I like.

Ska Daddyz did the 'Hotel California' cover, and the thread you want is here.
Quote by Mia (Pulp Fiction)
Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.
