Covering Your Tracks – 19
Every year or so Fearless Records releases a Various Artists comp called Punk Goes… that features punk (and punkish) bands doing covers from a period or genre. The first was 2000’s Punk Goes Metal. One of the more recent releases, April 2010’s Punk Goes Classic Rock, features some well done covers of classic rock hits.
