Attack Attack have done a hardcore/screamo version of I kissed a girl.

I've always though Summer Love from Grease would be awesome to punk up. I even wrote a bassline for it :P

Class.

I was gonna do a Hardcore/Crossover cover of Poison, but apparently it's not Britney Spears, and I cant get the song anywhere.

The other day my girlfriend called me a pedophile.


I said, "Damn, that's a big-ass word for an 8 year-old."

+1 To Brown Eyed Girl

Also, I sang a set with a pick-up band out here in Iraq. We did a kick ass cover of Yellow Submarine. Just play power chords and palm mute during the verse. It's awesome!

Wow that version is almost as bad as the original.

I reckon you should cover some Ace of Base.

EDIT: Cover Torn by Natalie Imbruglia

you should call one of the songs, "Respecting Old People" just to mix things up.

Don't make Punk covers over Black Metal >.< Make fun of something that sucks, instead of making good stuff suck <.< Except you're gonna cover the newer Mayhem works xD Go ahead!

Dude, Cocaine Blues from Johnny Cash. That would be an amazing cover to make inot a hardcore style, especially with all the little stops and starts.

You should do a punk cover of knockin on heavens door
I've been trying to convince my band to do that for a while
#17
Thats an interesting idea.

You could keep the solos in though, they're class solos.

Sure, if the band doesnt get the idea, start work on it yourself! Then if it goes well, it'll catch on.

That's cool I love punk covers. Maybe you could take the piss out of some High School Musical songs? That would be hilarious

Dude, check out ADTR's cover of Since U Been Gone, awesomeness is the only word for it.
just a thought, you could do that new rhianna (spelling?) song, im not sure what its called, but it has that catchy spoken/sung part in the beat that you could make into a sick bass line.
We've dressed up in our best...

My mate sent me that 2 days ago and omfg it's so awesome

Also the Attack Attack version is immense if you listen to all of it IMO (To BenF)

and a group called SKaTallica have done a ska (obviously) version of Brown Eyed Girl and it's awesome. ****ing lush bassline. Check it out.
