Molly Tuttle Shares ‘Olympia, WA’ Rancid Cover
“Olympia, WA” appears on Rancid’s 1995 album …And Out Come The Wolves. Tuttle’s nod to the renowned punk band follows previous covers from the Grateful Dead and The National.
Molly detailed the Rancid cover in a statement:
I used to listen to Rancid and Operation Ivy all the time as an angsty 7th grader, and a couple of friends and I spent many hours learning their songs to perform at our school concerts. “Years later, I still love these songs!! When I played a show in Olympia, WA last fall this song was stuck in my head all day so we learned it at soundcheck and played it in the show. Then in December I showed it to Ketch Secor and we played it on our duo tour — he also sang harmony on this track and sounds terrific. This song is so good and just makes me super happy for unexplainable reasons.
