Laaz Rockit - Holiday in Cambodia (Dead Kennedys Cover)

Yeah, I have another complaint.

I enjoy cover songs always have, ask any of my friends who know my musical taste. I believe in making the song your own, however this cover of the classic Dead Kennedys "Holiday in Cambodia" has always bugged the crap out of me.

Over all it's a good cover, metal band doing a punk song not a bad thing. What I object to is changing of the lyrics. You do not change lyrics in a song to be politically correct. I Don't care if you want to be PC and not offend anyone that's your choice, but if you are going to do that you should cover another song. Changing one word changes the whole point of the song.

This song was part of their 1989 release "Annihilation Principal" released on Enigma and RoadRunner Records.

Maybe I'm being to hard on them but oh well.

Cheers,

Brian Guy
