Okay, I want to re-write a pop song to make it punk and I have no idea wha pop song to cover considering I dont really turn on the radio or any music station to be honest. So, what song should I cover?

By the way, I want to do a song that hasn't been covered by a band or one that isn't covered a lot.

Together Forever - Rick Astley

And by punk you mean like Sex Pistols or more like Green Day?

Pick something thats catchy or got a good melody. Or go for something with complete novelty value (ala rick astley)

I made a Reggae cover of Never Gonna Give You Up It sounds badass.

And my band does a Ska cover of Any Way You Want It by Journey.

I'd suggest doing Never Gonna Give You Up. I started working on a punk version of it after I did the Reggae one.
