PUNK GOES… – In 2000, Fearless Records released an album of up-and-coming bands from the punk scene covering classic tracks by the likes of Judas Priest, Guns N’ Roses, Slayer, Metallica, and Megadeth. Titled Punk Goes Metal, the compilation was so popular with both the musicians covering the songs, and the fans that loved hearing their favorite rock bands’ versions of tracks in other genres, that the compilation became an annual institution. One decade later, with over 600,000 albums and 2 million singles sold in the U.S. alone, Fearless Records is proud to announce the tenth in the Punk Goes… series – Punk Goes Pop Volume 3. Prior volumes include Punk Goes Pop 1 & 2, Punk Goes Classic Rock, Punk Goes Crunk, Punk Goes Acoustic and have featured hit bands such as The All-American Rejects, Rise Against, 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.

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
