Minor Threat – Steppin’ Stone

In My Eyes EP

Song: Steppin’ Stone
Cover Artist: Minor Threat
Album (Year): In My Eyes EP (1981)
Original Artist: Paul Revere & The Raiders


If you’ve read my ‘Welcome’ post or ‘About Me’ page you know that Minor Threat holds a special place in my heart, so today you’re getting the first of the three covers Minor Threat did during their way too short career. This isn’t your mid-90’s pop-punk band. This is raw, distorted bliss.

Steppin’ Stone was originally recorded in 1966 by Paul Revere & The Raiders for their album ‘Midnight Ride’ and is a great Rock n’ Roll song. It became an even bigger hit later that same year for The Monkees after being released as the B-Side to their hit I’m A Believer. It’s theme of not being put down makes it the perfect song for the anti-establishment attitude of early 80’s punk, and Minor Threat gives it that perfect punk treatment.
