Now on its thirteenth installment in the the whole Punk Goes… compilation series, the albums have become a regular occurrence in the scene. Though these cover albums are meant to be just good fun, showing a band’s adaptation of some popular work, they should always try and stay somewhat true to the original yet brand their own identity into the flesh.
Lifted from the upcoming ‘Punk Goes Pop: Volume 5′ album, Mayday Parade have done their own cover of Goyte‘s popular single ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’, featuring guest vocals from Pierce The Veil frontman Vic Fuentes. Give it a listen below:

The Punk Goes… series in its past few releases has received mixed reviews, people seem to either love or loathe the compilations, which as time has gone by have seemed to back away from featuring bands that would bands that would be considered ‘punk’. Now, with the series’ 12th installment, ‘Punk Goes Pop 4′, many of the artists featured could only loosely be considered punk, and sadly like the last few additions to the collection, the majority of this release is barely worth your time.
The latest installment in the Punk Goes… compilation series, ‘Punk Goes Pop Vol. 4′, is to see a UK release date. The album will be available within the UK from November 21st 2011, and the album’s cover artwork and tracklist can be found below:
