Punk Goes Pop is a cool compilation series, now in its third rev, that finds the finest young emo, screamo, pop-punk and indie bands covering today's chart-topping hits.
Volume three of the compilation has The Ready Set covering B.o.B and Hayley Williams' "Airplanes" and Mayday Parade putting their spin on Jason Derulo's "In My Head." But perhaps the standout track is the electro-screamo band Breathe Carolina's take on Jay Sean's infectious dance-friendly smash, "Down."
Honestly, Breathe Carolina probably have a lot more in common, musically, with Jay Sean than they do with a lot of punk bands. In the video below, Breathe's David Schmitt talks about how the song not only appealed to the band on a technical level but "Down" even struck a chord with the way the duo talks. Apparently they like to ask if people are "down" with things all the time. Two points for convenience!
Watch Breathe Carolina's David Schmitt talk about why his band chose to cover Jay Sean's "Down," then listen to the cover in the video below.
Punk Goes Pop Volume 3 is out now.
