The band’s updated take on the song stays true to Offspring’s original work, but amps things up a bit with a much heavier guitar riff, bass and drums. Front man Dexter Holland’s vocals are replaced here with the much harsher vocals of WoR front man Bobby Demoss.
The whole of the band’s performance gives Offspring’s original a whole new identity complete with heavy guitar breakdown in its bridge.
The band discussed how and why it covered the song in a prepared statement.
“We chose this iconic song for its energy, attitude, and lyrical message,” the statement reads. “We felt it spoke to the overall theme of our album, which discusses similar topics such as rebellion, anger, and rage. We were messing around at practice one day and were playing this song and felt that we could really inject some new life into it. We bumped up the tempo, tuned down, threw a breakdown in the middle, and incorporated Bobby Demoss’ trademark screaming vocals to achieve that goal.”
