THE CLASH of Cover Tunes


Anti-Flag vs. Beatnick Termites vs. Manic Hispanic
Anti-Flag (and fans):

Beatnick Termites:

Manic Hispanic:

Manic Hispanic is a farcical Chicano punk band comprised of current and former members of Californian punk bands the Adolescents, The Grabbers, Punk Rock Karaoke, The X-Members, 22 Jacks, Final Conflict, Agent Orange, Death by Stereo and The Cadillac Tramps. Apparently all, or at least many, of the members were to some extent afoul of the law as the band was formed on the advice of a probation officer in order to keep the guys out of further trouble.

Manic Hispanic plays punk standards, altering the lyrics to reflect the perspective of disadvantaged Hispanics. Their songs aim to be comical while also drawing attention to real structural difficulties that Hispanics have to cope with on a day-to-day basis. A few characteristics that typify Manic Hispanic’s creations are that the lyrics are going to be witty; the songs are going to be played with ample expertise; and the songs they select to parody are going to be among the best of the punk/hardcore genre.

The I.N.S. Took My Novia Away:


Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. It is your solemn responsibility to decide which cover song prevails. In other words … Which Side Are You On?!!?
