In the winter of 2016, Dynamite Daniel and his band were scheduled to perform at a rock club in New York City called The Delancey. With the limited amount of time that he and his band had to play on stage, they decided to do a cover of popular hit song "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by famous rock band Nirvana. Their rendition of this great hit earned them a standing ovation by the audience in the crowd. Little did they know that their performance was recorded by one of the DJs who attended their show that night. After receiving the recorded demo of their live performance at The Delancey, Dynamite Daniel didn't hesitate to upload the track on his NumberOneMusic and ReverbNation webpages. The track was received well by his fans on all three websites. For four straight years, Dynamite Daniel's rendition of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was on heavy rotation. Then in the summer of 2020, "SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT (LIVE)" was finally available for sale on Apple, CD Baby, Napster, Spotify, and other online music stores. "SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT (LIVE)" would later appear as the 14th track off of Dynamite Daniel's greatest hits album "THE BEST OF DYNAMITE DANIEL: VOLUME II."
In the spring of 2018, Dynamite Daniel was approached by a well-known A&R company called Little Hipster Music. While scouting for new artists that they could introduce to major record labels, they came across Dynamite Daniel's ReverbNation webpage. Impressed by his talent and his work, they asked for Dynamite Daniel to re-record one of his major hits so that they could present it to one or more of the record labels that they were in close relationship with. The track that Little Hipster Music thought would make a major impact was Dynamite Daniel's classic hit song "Thrash 'N' Burn." The offer by this legendary A&R company seemed promising, so Dynamite Daniel agreed to re-record the track with his band. In the summer of 2018, Dynamite Daniel brought his band members back to Astoria Soundworks Recording Studio where he originally recorded "Thrash 'N' Burn" in the year of 2004. After several takes, Dynamite Daniel and his band finally nailed the re-recording of "Thrash 'N' Burn" making it a much stronger and aggressive track than it's original release 13 years ago. Amazed by the new re-recorded version of Dynamite Daniel's "Thrash 'N' Burn," Little Hipster Music didn't hesitate to send the track over to major record labels. In the summer of 2020, "THRASH 'N' BURN (LITTLE HIPSTER MUSIC VERSION)" was finally released to the world through Apple, CD Baby, Napster, Spotify, and other online music stores. "THRASH 'N' BURN (LITTLE HIPSTER MUSIC VERSION)" would later appear as the 13th track off of Dynamite Daniel's greatest hits album "THE BEST OF DYNAMITE DANIEL: VOLUME II."
In the summer of 2020, Dynamite Daniel released his 2nd greatest hits album "THE BEST OF DYNAMITE DANIEL: VOLUME II." This album is a collection of all of Dynamite Daniel's most popular songs during the course of 17 years that the project has been in operation. The album also features 2 bonus tracks which were "THRASH 'N' BURN (LITTLE HIPSTER MUSIC VERSION)" and "SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT (LIVE)." If I could think of one word to describe Dynamite Daniel's "THE BEST OF DYNAMITE DANIEL: VOLUME II" it would be...timeless!
