BAD MARY Covers Splendora's “You're Standing on My Neck (Theme from Daria)”
- New York-based punk rock band BAD MARY released a cover of Splendora's “You're Standing on My Neck” from their upcoming EP “Rock and Roll Classic Vol. 6”.
The original version of the song was released by American all-female alternative rock band Splendora in 1997.
The track is the theme song of the American adult sitcom by MTV “Daria” (1997-2002).
BAD MARY consists of lead vocalist Amanda Mac, with her husband Mike Staub on bass, her dad Bill Mac on drums, and her Hofstra University professor David Henderson on guitar.
Their new EP “Rock and Roll Classic Vol. 6” pays homage to songs spanning 1987 to 2007, featuring their takes on jams like Blondie's “One Way of Another”, Jefferson Airplane's “White Rabbit”, The Human League's “Don't You Want Me”, and Miley Cyrus's “See You Again”.
Mike Staub explained of the EP, “Some of these songs we have been performing live for years, and others are songs that we always wanted to play. They are all songs we love, and we wanted to put a unique punk-rock spin on them. Due to our band being multigenerational, our influences come from a lot of places. Whether it is the '70s, '80s, '90s, or '00s, all of these songs hit us at important times in our lives.”
The EP is set to be released on March 8, 2022.
