Fearless Records released another album in their series of Punk Goes compilations on vinyl, this time Punk Goes 90s Vol. 2. The track list/bands on this is wretched, to the point where I wish there wasn’t a band I’m a fan of on it so I wouldn’t have to buy it. It’s not often I refuse to buy something based on the bands on an album/compilation, but with horrid bands like Ice Nine Kills, Falling In Reverse, Motionless In White, The Ghost Inside, Chunk! No Captain Chunk! and Memphis May Fire it’s hard for anyone to argue. I bought this comp because there is a Yellowcard song on it, and a good cover at that.
When this comp first came out Fearless wanted $18 before shipping for it, which is a bit high if you ask me. During Black Friday 2014 weekend, Fearless ran a sale where everything in their web store was 15%, o top of any sales. This comp was already marked down, maybe even by accident, because the day after I bought it the price jumped back up to $18. I paid $14 shipped for this comp, which I feel is an acceptable price.
There were 500 copies of Punk Goes 90s Vol. 2 on white vinyl. White is the only variant. A full color, double-sided insert is included, but no download or CD is included, which is inexcusable these days, especially if a label wants $18 for it. Here is the track listing:
- Get Scared – My Own Worst Enemy (Lit cover)
- Memphis May Fire – Interstate Love Song (Stone Temple Pilots cover)
- Asking Alexandria – Closer (Nine Inch Nails cover)
- The Color Morale – Everlong (Foo Fighters cover)
- Chunk! No Captain Chunk – Allstar (Smash Mouth cover)
- Mayday Parade – Comedown (Bush cover)
- Motionless In White – Du Hast (Rammstein cover)
- Yellowcard – Today (Smashing Pumpkins cover)
- Hands Like Houses – Torn (Natalie Imbruglia over)
- The Ghost Inside – Southtown (P.O.D. cover)
- Falling In Reverse – Gangsta’s Paradise (Coolio cover)
- Ice Nine Kills – Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life) (Green Day cover)
