One look at the cover should tell you all you need to know about Punk Goes Pop vol. 7. It looks like the graphic designer was out of town, so they bought a stock photo and slapped something together in Word. It just screams tacky.


Tacky. That about sums it up. Listening to Boston Manor covering Twenty One Pilots or The Amity Affliction taking on The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face”, has zero redeeming value. Let’s just call it what it is, a money grab. It’s about time they put the Punk Goes Pop series out of its misery.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
