    Fearless will release the fourth installment of its massively popular Punk Goes Pop series on Nov. 21. As the title suggest, punk rockers give pop songs makeovers!

    Punk Goes Pop serves as a prime example of how songs can transcend genres and maintain their spunk. For example, Woe Is Me covers of Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)."

    Some background deets: An ongoing project for eleven years, the Punk Goes… series has featured the hottest rock bands covering songs from unexpected genres. Punk Goes Pop 4 takes an alternative/punk spin to Top 40 hits such as Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are"; Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)"; and, Adele's "Rolling in the Deep."

    The series has sold over 650,000 albums and over 3 million singles in just over a decade. Prior volumes include Punk Goes Pop 1, 2 & 3, Punk Goes Classic Rock, Punk Goes Crunk, Punk Goes Acoustic and have featured hit bands such as The All-American Rejects, Rise Against, Never Shout Never, Gym Class Heroes, Plain White T's, Jack's Mannequin, Relient K, Taking Back Sunday, Thrice, A Day to Remember, All Time Low and more.
