Silverstein’s cover of “Apologize” by One Republic is now posted to the Punk Goes Pop 2 MySpace! The next song premiere from Punk Goes Pop 2 will be on January 27th. Check out what vocalist Shane Told had to say about being on the compilation:
“We are super excited to be a part of Punk Goes Pop 2. We had a blast recording “Red Light Pledge” for the Punk Goes Acoustic 2 so we jumped at the chance to record a song for this one.
The interesting thing is that even though we’ve been a band for 9 years, we’ve never really done any covers. The only one we did was a cover of Lifetime’s “Rodeo Clown” for a tribute album that never came out. Most bands start out doing some covers before they write their own songs, but we jumped right into originals.
When we had to choose a song, there was a million we talked about doing, but we all agreed that “Apologize” would be rad. It was a song we all secretly rocked out to, a total guilty pleasure. It’s super catchy, it’s the kind of song you hear once and it’s instantly stuck in your head. I also met One Republic one time and they were really nice. I hope they don’t think we ruined their song :).
I’m super excited to hear what our friends bands have done, especially Bayside and A Day To Remember. I can’t wait to get this CD in my hands.
We had so much fun recording this that we decided to do some other covers as well. We’re almost done recording our new album and we’re going to have some B-Side cover songs as well. Check that out on March 31st!
Peace and Love,
Shane // Silverstein
