Santa Cruz hardcore band Drain have shared the final single from their upcoming Epitaph debut Living Proof, and this one's a cover of Descendents' 1985 I Don't Want to Grow Up classic "Good Good Things." It's a pretty faithful cover--just a little chuggier and more modern-sounding--and it finds vocalist Sammy Ciaramitaro deviating from his usual bark to show off a very strong knack for melodic singing.

"The Descendents were a huge band for me as both a teenager and as an adult," Sammy says. "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."

He continues, "It definitely was a bit of a step outside of our lane, doing cleaner singing and what not, but we wanted to try and stick true to the original while giving it a little bit of our personality in the mix. Listen to the Descendents." Check out the cover and its Ryan Baxley-directed video below.
