"So Issues' very first song is going to be a cover of Justin Bieber? That's a good way to start."

Of Mice & Men's first song was their cover of Pokerface by Lady Gaga.

Is Issues the new Woe Is Me? I'm guessing that's how they got in this compilation since Woe Is Me was in the past.

Wowwww people need to grow up. This is music. Half of these artists covering these songs are doing it for the fact that they love the artist that did it before them. And honestly if you have nothing better to do then waste your time posting about how things suck.... What does that make you. It's music. It's too enjoy listening to. Every artist puts the covers into a feeling they can relate too... Whether its screaming or being more rocky or whatever. And seriously....... You can say that's not "punk". But genres change and mold every single year. Honestly who cares about genres? It's just a word. Just enjoy the music...... Or don't. Why whine and look like an idiot about it?
