Punk Goes Pop Vol. 3
Released on November 2, 2010
In 2000, Fearless Records released an album of up-and-coming bands from the punk scene covering
classic tracks by the likes of Judas Priest, Guns N' Roses, Slayer, Metallica, and Megadeth. Titled Punk Goes
Metal, the compilation was so popular with both the musicians covering the songs, and the fans that loved
hearing their favorite rock bands' versions of tracks in other genres, that the compilation became an annual
institution. One decade later, with over 600,000 albums and 2 million singles sold in the U.S. alone, Fearless
Records announces the tenth in the Punk Goes... series - Punk Goes Pop Volume 3. The compilation is the
freshest, most vibrant-sounding Punk Goes... to date, and features a selection of the hottest alternative rock
bands covering Billboard Top Ten hits, including modern day pop classics by Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Katy
Perry, Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake.
The Punk Goes themed compilation series is one of the most highly anticipated compilations in the
market, and the top selling full-priced compilation in the alternative genre. Prior volumes include Punk Goes
Pop 1 & 2, Punk Goes Classic Rock, Punk Goes Crunk, Punk Goes Acoustic and have featured hit bands
such as The All American Rejects, A Day To Remember, Rise Against, All Time Low, Plain White T’s, Jack’s
Mannequin, Relient K, Thrice, and more. Reserve space for the entire series in your various artist section.
