Dr. Martens (aka. Doc Martens) have been in existence for 50 years this year. I still have my 13 year old doc’s. How old are yours?
In celebration of their 50th Anniversary, they asked 10 artists to record their version of a cult classic track which represents the spirit of the people who’ve worn DM’s over the past 50 years. They also asked 10 directors to make videos for each of the tracks.
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club chose to cover Ewan MacColl’s “Dirty Old Town,” better known as a 1985 cover by The Pogues.
You can watch all of the artist’s videos as well as download the tracks for free HERE.
