Punk Goes Classic Rock Track List

Holy Toledo, it’s another album in the Punk Goes… series. And this one is bound to inspire some strong reactions. Absolutepunk posted the track list and artwork for it this morning.

1. Hit The Lights “More Than A Feeling” (originally recorded by Boston) 2. VersaEmerge “Paint It Black” (originally recorded by The Rolling Stones) 3. The Almost “Free Fallin'” (originally recorded by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers) 4. Mayday Parade “We Are The Champions” (originally recorded by Queen) 5. The Summer Set “Rock ‘n Roll All Nite” (originally recorded by KISS) 6. We The Kings “Caught Up In You” (originally recorded by .38 Special) 7. A Skylit Drive “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)” (originally recorded by Journey) 8. I See Stars “Your Love” (originally recorded by The Outfield) 9. Pierce The Veil “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” (originally recorded by Blue Oyster Cult) 10. Forever The Sickest Kids “Crazy Train” (originally recorded by Ozzy Osbourne) 11. The Maine “Pour Some Sugar On Me” (originally recorded by Def Leppard) 12. Envy On The Coast “All Along The Watchtower” (originally recorded by Jimi Hendrix) 13. Every Avenue “Take Me Home Tonight” (originally recorded by Eddie Money) 14. Never Shout Never “Bohemian Rhapsody” (originally recorded by Queen) 15. blessthefall “Dream On” (originally recorded by Aerosmith)

First of all, didn’t Midtown (you know, that band Gabe Saporta fronted before he had a peyote vision in the desert) already cover “Your Love”?

I’m way interested to hear Every Avenue’s cover, and I surmise that The Maine will do decently with Def Leppard’s song–but I fear for Never Shout Never and Mayday Parade. Can anyone cover Queen and not get torn to pieces? I’m just not sure. Plus, Bohemian Rhapsody is, uh, pretty ambitious.

What tracks are you excited to hear? Which listing is making you preemptively cringe?
