Fearless Records has released the fifth volume of their Punk Goes Pop series. Included are artists such as Memphis May Fire, Upon This Dawning, Craig Owens, The Word Alive, and more doing covers of famous pop songs. You can check out the full track list below as well as a lyric video for Issues cover of Justin Bieber‘s “Boyfriend”.

You can snag your copy of Punk Goes Pop vol. 5 on iTunes. Also, now through Nov. 19th, all previous editions of Punk Goes… are on sale for $7.99.

Personally, and maybe I’m not understanding this idea, but doesn’t it seem like you should have, I don’t know, punk bands doing Punk Goes Pop? These seem more like screamo, metalcore, and bands that fall into those types of genres. Help me out here readers, am I wrong?
