I would love to hear New Found Glory cover "This Could Be Love', because it's such a perfectly morbid song.
And Alkaline Trio to cover "Tell-Tale Heart", well, because....why not?

I'd like to hear New Found Glory play Cringe because I know they'd have a lot of fun playing a song that fast and the crowd would be excited and feed off the energy of that song.

I'd like to hear Alkaline Trio play Truth of my Youth. Though it would be interesting to hear which singer would do it. Maybe get Dan on the verses and Matt on the chorus or vice versa, but that's another high energy song that I think Alk3 would pull off well.

Edit: This is for the Chicago show!

I would like to see New Found Glory cover Mercy Me because I would want to see the energy they'd bring to the song. Not saying Alkaline doesn't have energy, but NFG just has a lot of it. Also, I'd like to see Alkaline Trio cover All Downhill From Here because I'd love to hear them sing my favorite NFG song and they'd obviously have their own twist on it.

I'd love to win tickets to the Boston, MA show!

NFG should cover Radio. Groan all you want, but I think Jordan would do great.

Alkaline could cover I Don't Wanna Know. I think Dan would sound awesome on it.

Clearly, it's all about vocals for me. But think about it, and you'll see both picks would work!

Alkaline Trio should cover My Friends Over You because its such a poppy song and I'm not even sure they can pull it off. NFG should cover We've Had Enough because I think they can totally pull it off.

Sayreville, NJ show

I would love NFG to cover Radio because I think NFG is good at doing slower songs, but giving them an edge, which is exactly what Radio is.

I would like Alkaline Trio to cover 2's and 3's because it's NFG's heaviest song and I like the energy of Alkaline Trio's older stuff, compared to their more straight foreword rockish sounding newer stuff.

NFG doing We've Had Enough would be super sick.
Alk3 doing Something I call Personality would be even sicker.

Let my broke ass go to the Houston show.

I'd love to see New Found Glory cover Message From Kathlene because it is my favorite Dan song and they never play it. I honestly think Jordan could pull it off and do it justice.

It would be awesome if Alkaline Trio covered Golden. It is my favorite song off of Coming Home (a B-Side, I know). Just listening to the song, I can picture in my head what it would sound like if Skiba were singing it, and it sounds awesome. I also like the irony in it; most of Trio's songs are quite depressing, and this song has a tone that is just the opposite.

I'd love to see NFG cover Alk3's As You Were:



The song is pure pop-punk energy reminiscent of early NFG. Reminds me a lot of NFG's self-titled album and I think NFG would pull it off perfectly!

I'd like to see Alk3 cover NFG's Forget My Name:



One of my all time favorite NFG songs and it would be incredibly interesting to hear Alk3's take on it. It doesn't really sound like an Alk3 song and that's why I'd love to see them take a stab at it.
