The Dollyrots Cover "Auld Lang Syne"

"Auld Lang Syne" is the New Year's Eve song of choice, and this year The Dollyrots have decided to take it on. The pop punk duo released their version of it, and as you probably guessed, it's a punked up version. It's not a groundbreaking version of the song, but it is ridiculously fun, and that's all you truly want for a version of "Auld Lang Syne." But as rockin' as The Dollyrots make it, they add some genuine heart to this one. Instead of just the snotty punk version everyone does, this one actually has optimism and positivity.

Kelly Ogden says of her band's take on the NYE classic:

“We’ve done Christmas originals and covers, a Thanksgiving song… figured we should round it out with something to play at New Years. Usually when Auld Lang Syne comes on I feel a bit wistful… I mean maybe it’s the champagne but it’s also time to reflect on time passed and what we hope for the future. Hopefully, the future is bright and full of goodness, so we made our version reflect that! And put in a little request for all of us to be better to one another. Maybe this year we can feel happy and hopeful when we hear this version of a classic."
