Cover Tuesday, Pt. 6

So I intended this week’s Cover Tuesday feature to be bands covering reggae songs. Then it was bands covering reggae songs in ska style. Then it was bands covering Toots and The Maytals songs as ska. But then I realized I didn’t have enough of those. So it changed a little. Now it’s bands covering Toots and The Maytals songs, one song by Jimmy Cliff and one by Bob Dylan as a bonus. You could call it “Ska Covers of Songs from The Harder They Come Plus One … Not,” if you need to. You probably shouldn’t though.

The Clash – Pressure Drop (Toots and The Maytals cover) (Buy It)

Sublime – 5446 That’s My Number/Ball and Chain (Toots and The Maytals cover) (Buy It)

Rancid – The Harder They Come (Jimmy Cliff cover) (Buy It)

The Specials – Pressure Drop (Toots and The Maytals cover) (Buy It)

and…

The Specials – Maggie’s Farm (Bob Dylan cover) (Buy It)

And hey, if you’re all hungry for covers, head to I Am Fuel… for The Postal Service covering John Lennon and M. Ward covering Pete Townshend, and Moistworks for some more Dylan covers.
