New Covers to Which I’ll Never Listen, Part II: August Burns Red Play Wham!

  • Axl Rosenberg

In addition to Five Finger Death Punch releasing an Offspring cover to which I’ll never listen, August Burns Red have now released a cover of Wham!’s “Last Christmas” to which I will also never listen. I will, however, take a moment to make fun of this ridiculous statement about the cover from ABR bassist Dustin Davidson:

“The lyrics to Wham!’s ‘Last Christmas‘ are very sad, so if you’re feeling lonely this holiday season, I hope this cover finds you well.”

Two things that oughta jump out at you about that sentiment:

  1. If you’re sad, this song will likely not cheer you up, because it, too, is sad.
  2. If you’re sad, Davidson hopes the song finds you not sad.

So the statement might as well say this:

“If you’re depressed, here, let us remind you how terrible everything is. Also, if you’re falling from a great distance, we hope your feet are on solid ground.”

Be sad and well at the same time below:
