    I've never heard of more than half of these bands.

    I really only want to hear the state champs song. The rest sounds like garbage.

    I only wanna hear the Dance Gavin Dance song.

    I love pop music and am all about respecting it as an art, but jfc I have such a love-hate relationship with that Bruno Mars song. Just the fact alone that he uses the phrase "wake up with no jammies" alone ruins the song, but there are some small instrumental parts (there's a synth hit that I fucking love) and most of the background vocals that are just unbelievably clever.

    Bruno Mars' lyrics are offensive garbage. Music is cool, but the lyrics are terrible.

    I'll wait until Our Last Night covers these covers.

    Not saying I was expecting anything great but geez, that tracklist is bad. Also, the DGD cover is on the page and I didn't find it that notable. With that said however, I haven't liked their stuff for awhile so that might just be me.

    Am I getting older or are the bands they use on these things getting worse and worse? No desire to hear any of it except for perhaps the Seaway song. They used to have big bands doing these and they were fun. I guess after the seventh instalment that's what happens (unless you are a giant franchise about cars starring The Rock).
  13. The DGD song is on that page

    I am clearly getting old... bands I vaguely recognize (exceptions of course) covering songs I barely know...

    What are the best covers over the years of this? I live for the "In My Head" cover by Mayday Parade. Derek's voice worked really well for that song.

    Supposedly there's a cover by Capsize and the Amity Affliction on this as well, not listed at the news item's link.

    Odyssey | Marketing | Punk Goes Pop

    Edit: I take it back, Capsize is listed but it's strangely formatted as the only list item offset to the right. The Amity Affliction isn't though...

    it was all a dream Prestigious

    no joke i really enjoyed the Starting Line's I'm Real back then. also Noise Ratchet's Crush. It's not on Pop Goes... but The Maine did a fun cover of I Wanna Love You
