Jim Lindberg is the front man for the Hermosa Beach punk outfit Pennywise, and gigantic X fan. Jim wants to create an X tribute album featuring various artists covering various songs and release that record to the public.
No Doubt, Everclear, Social Distortion, Blondie and Hank Williams III are some of the acts that Jim has on his mind for the cover tribute that is expected to drop in 2002. "I have trouble thinking anyone's going to turn us
down," Lindberg said last week. "We're going to suggest certain songs, and if they want to do something else, that's fine."
Pennywise contributed their version of "Weíre Desperate" featuring Exene Cervenka which ended up on the soon to be released Punk-O-Rama 6 album (June 5, Epitaph). Pennywise are going for adds with their first single "Fuck Authority" off their forthcoming album Land Of The Free?, which will spew from the Epitaph headquarters on June 19, right before the band embark on their traditional Vans Warped Tour June 22.
