K.Flay Covers Limp Bizkit, Green Day, And The Offspring For New EP “Don’t Judge A Song By Its Cover”

K.Flay has released a new three-track EP titled “Don’t Judge A Song By Its Cover.” The effort, which can be streamed below, features covers of Limp Bizkit’s “Break Stuff,” Green Day’s “Brain Stew,” and The Offspring’s “Self Esteem.” K.Flay commented:

“I wanted to put these three songs in a totally new context and really expose the vulnerability of the lyrics. Each cover is a reimagining of a 90s rock hit that was heavy, aggressive and male-fronted. But when you break them down, they are SUPER EMOTIONAL. So this is me celebrating an era that’s had a huge influence on my career, and kind of excavating the emotionality I found in these iconic songs.”

The Offspring Premiere New Video For Their Cover Of Darlene Love’s “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)”

The Offspring have premiered a new video for their cover of Darlene Love’s “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).” You can check that out below. Dexter Holland commented:

“It just seemed like the world could use a nice holiday song right now. We’ve always been huge fans of Darlene Love, so when the idea came up to do a Christmas song, we jumped at the chance to record that one…and tried not to wreck it!”

Khemmis Frontman Ben Hutcherson Releases Cover Of The Offspring’s “Come Out And Play”

Khemmis frontman Ben Hutcherson has released a cover of The Offspring‘s “Come Out And Play” as part of his Doctor Of Doom project. You can find a video for that below and donate to Hutcherson’s Patreon HERE.

Hutcherson commented:

“’Nothing happens unless first we dream.’ – Carl Sandburg

‘Dreams are true while they last, and do we not live in dreams?’ – Alfred Lord Tennyson

Do you remember your dreams? I do.

I once dreamt of a world. A different, better world. One wherein the Offspring‘s album ‘Smash‘ was written and recorded by members of Misery Index and Napalm Death. Wouldn’t you like to live in that world? I had a fleeting glimpse of it and it is glorious. You, too, can visit that reality (in three minute increments) thanks to my reimagined version of ‘Come out and Play’ and the ‘music video’ I willed into existence from the horrors of my mind.

Thanks to Chuck E. Cheese for scarring all of us who came of age in the 80s and 90s.

‘Like a Spreading Disease’ is the second in an ongoing series of videos wherein I deconstruct pop/rock hits from yesteryear and rearrange them as extreme metal songs. Want to learn how to play this song? Want to know what I’m covering next? All of this and much more is available to supporters of my Patreon!”
