PureVolume Exclusive! Like Moths To Flames Cover Fun.'s "Some Nights" for Punk Goes Pop 5

Share on Tumblr

Don't be fooled by the initial toned down nature of Like Moths To Flames' cover of Fun.'s pop hit anthem "Some Nights." While the metal outfit made sure that their contribution to Fearless Records' Punk Goes Pop 5 maintained the appeal of Fun.'s massive hit, they weren't about to take the plunge into pop entirely.

Delivering the number's opening harmonies with only a hint of guttural vocals, the band quickly find their roots, and the tune undergoes an epic makeover. Hardcore-inspired breakdowns and slashing guitars take center stage, while the song's original melody line acts as a strong underlying presence—it's an incredible blend of hooky pop and merciless metal . . . a completely original take on the tune.

Punk Goes Pop 5 drops November 6 via Fearless Records, and boasts a tracklist that features names like Mayday Parade, the Maine, Upon This Dawning, Craig Owens and more. Pre-orders are available now, so secure your copy today.
