Hardcore three-piece Drain have released their boisterous cover of the Descendents’ 1985 single “Good Good Things” via Epitaph Records. The classic punk-rock track which assisted in launching the Descendents into fame was featured on their sophomore album I Don’t Want to Grow Up.

Drain’s rendition of “Good Good Things” captures a similar essence as the Descendents’ version, albeit with a more modern punk twist that showcases vocalist Sammy Ciaramitaro’s melodic prowess. The group’s cover will also be featured on their forthcoming full-length album Living Proof which is expected to drop via Epitaph on May 5. You can preorder the record here.

Ciaramitaro explains, “The Descendents were a huge band for me as both a teenager and as an adult. I know I can speak for all of us when I say that it’s an honor to pay homage and respect to them, as a band that changed the game for us. I just straight up love this track and in a weird way felt like lyrically, it hit home and touched on the same themes that Drain is all about.”
