    "Good Ridsance (Time Of Your Life)" (Green Day cover) I don't I've ever heard that song by them, just the one with a similar name, "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)".
    I don't understand why they call those albums "punk goes ....". Most of the bands doing the covers are some sort of core with the closest being pop punk.
    A few of these bands are actually decent, particularly The Ghost Inside and Hands Like Houses... and I'm actually interested in seeing what The Color Morale does with Everlong, they're actually a band with a lot of passion in their music. Sue me.
    this is going to be really cool! Memphis May Fire, Motionless In White, Falling In Reverse, The Word Alive, Yellowcard and Capt Chunk! Fuck yeah, that's dope.
    I'm curious about the Rammstein cover. Granted, "Du Hast" only has maybe 3 lines at best, but I just want to know how butchered the German will be, or if they will sing in German at all (changing it into "You Hate")
    I'm interested in hearing what Yellowcard did with Today and what The Color Morale did with Everlong.
