Asking Akon
 
Asking Alexandria's cover of the Akon song "Right Now (Na Na Na)" can be heard on myspace.

I'm sure this is great.

This is a very original and cutting edge idea.

Shocked about the love this is already getting. Maybe I should actually give this a listen...

EDIT:
Pretty boring cover. Sounds like they took the one breakdown they use in every single one of their songs and put it in an Akon song. I'll give it...it's not awful. And this is coming from a guy who enjoyed Stand Up and Scream.

This is better than any song off this band's album.

That being said, it still sucks.

Don't know what it is, but I played that album frequently for months

Same. It took me that long to realize that most songs on it sound the same. I had it high as one of my favorite albums ever at what point but after more and more listens I got bored and only go back to it occasionally now.

It got old very quickly for me.

I feel like they didn't really try to make a solid cover. Kids are gonna love it regardless of what they do.

The exact same happened with me, I listen to it maybe a few times a month now

Not even that many for me. But I've recently rediscoverd the love i have for pop-punk so it's been all This Time Next Year, New Found Glory, Four Year Strong, The Wonder Years, Man Overboard, Transit as of late.

Singing sounds stale and boring. The breakdowns are repetitive, but the singing especially irked me, because I've heard AA sing pretty well in other songs.
