oh heavens....

deadelement 09/14/12 12:08 PM

It's a pretty faithful cover, so not bad.

NorthstarPark 09/14/12 12:08 PM

We should get every band involved in these ""punk" goes" serious, put them in a room and throw a grenade at them.

jjnunn118 09/14/12 12:13 PM

Not bad, but the Some Nights cover on this just sounds like a god awful idea

steve187 09/14/12 12:22 PM

boring

OfSkate&Scars 09/14/12 12:23 PM

Not too shabby

Beej 347 09/14/12 12:23 PM

not bad but boring

t00latef0rr0ses 09/14/12 12:25 PM

solid cover. They do what they do well.

guitarguy211 09/14/12 12:30 PM

Pretty good song.

HeyItsAllyssa 09/14/12 12:32 PM

I really like but then again anything Matty sings is a-okay in my book!

you are on to something...

PetitnaindesĪles 09/14/12 12:37 PM

meh, at least they succeeded to make it sound like a usual MMF song

wtfjaked 09/14/12 12:55 PM

Metalcore and a few pop acts go pop.

Frankburnsred 09/14/12 12:59 PM

not half bad

SuNDaYSTaR 09/14/12 01:02 PM

Meh.

Scrawns 09/14/12 01:04 PM

i am pleased with the ratio of clean vocals to screams in this

GetUpAndrew 09/14/12 01:26 PM

Not bad, pretty enjoyable.

pepster50 09/14/12 01:33 PM

wow, didnt hate it. I didn't love it either. Sounds like MMF.

A Head 09/14/12 01:47 PM

Love the BURN!!!! Pretty solid cover

VoliminalX 09/14/12 02:01 PM

They really need to work on not sounding the same in every song they put out.

DampPants4 09/14/12 02:10 PM

*clink*(toss)

DylanPPPP 09/14/12 02:37 PM

Not as awful as that Call Me Maybe cover but still not that good.

TheRealJohnOC 09/14/12 02:50 PM

I dig it.

I love Matt's clean vocals in most of their songs. This song's over-produced, but it IS a Punk Goes... compilation, so I guess that's to be expected. Overall, not bad! Pretty dang good for the genre anyway.

cowlord 09/14/12 04:24 PM

I actually like it.

Journey408 09/14/12 04:41 PM

shitty song, shitty band

Remarkable297 09/14/12 04:42 PM

They really have to stop with these pop goes punk albums. They are just getting worse and worse especially with the line-ups they get. If anything they should change the name of the compilations to pop goes shit

The video doesn't work anymore.. So you may want to replace that with another one or delete it altogether..

Handraa 09/14/12 05:19 PM

when that some nights cover drops ap.net is going to freak the fuck out.

Matty Mullins would catch it for you!

rushour144 09/14/12 09:06 PM

I no longer like this band. Had been on the fence for a while...this just sealed it. The music is actually pretty good, but Matty REALLY succumbed to the scene, sad really.

They used to be good at that. With the Hollow they became just another Risecore band. Their latest effort wasn't much different. First couple EPs and their debut album are actually pretty solid.

I agree with this. I'm not really into this style at all, but there was something about some of their older stuff that was able to keep my attention. Granted I never loved the band, but I give credit where credit is due.

The Hollow was a great album beginning to end, as far as the overall flow. Challenger was a huuuuge let down for me. There seemed to be too many over-the-top influences in songs to where it was almost mimicry. Bummed that this video is no longer available, as I was honestly curious to see how it went down..

PetitnaindesĪles 09/16/12 04:49 AM

yeah i hated The Hollow at first but i admit it was a decent chugchug album and had some killer songs. Challenger just sounded like a rehash

Ryan Gardner 09/16/12 01:20 PM

Not terrible


I fixed the video on the first page

CJParello 09/16/12 09:38 PM

Love Memphis May Fire
 
So I'm really hoping this cover turned out well
