Four Year Strong premiere 'Bitter Sweet Symphony' cover

Tue, September 7, 2021 7:22 AM PT2,020 views

Massachusetts pop punk/melodic hardcore veterans Four Year Strong have released a cover version of The Verve's 1997 hit, "Bitter Sweet Symphony." The new track can be streamed below.

Four Year Strong's Dan O'Connor comments: "We've always loved the song Bitter Sweet Symphony, it holds a lot of nostalgia for me. Makes me think of being 12 thinking I was cool, which I was not. Everything about the song is great, the melody, the hook, the beat, and the string part. They all live rent free in my brain. Being able to create something that feels like FYS and having great foundations to start with was very fun."

This song sucked when it originally came out. Why would this band choose to make it even worse?

Unlistenable

That "rent free" catchphrase needs to die off.

Sounds like Blind Guardian on the leads, which is kind of impressive. Jared Kushner gonna have these boys play at Trumps re-instatement party 9/18

Four Year Strong has always been a shitty band. Aaron the old guitarist from The Ghost Inside loves them, and he's one of the biggest douche nozzles on earth.

intro riff is cool, agree it's got that BG tone going on. But then the vocals kick in and it sounds like shit, and all they ever do is repeat that tired intro again washed up music for has-beens

Assholes who still think Cruel Intentions is a good movie are stoked.

No way in hell could this be considered melodic hardcore, why the f*ck is it on this website? Thought this homepage was for metal and hardcore. I guess I was mistaken, but I won't be the only one by a long shot.

nobody said it was a melodic hardcore or even pop punk song, cheetoh breath they are talking about the band not the song why are so many people on this planet so damn dumb?

sounds to me like you agree it should not be posted on lambgoat, it has no relevance to us

Posting this is worse than posting about juggalos. At least ICP's music is dark and aggressive.

If you don't like it then close your eyes and go whine somewhere else.

"Rent free" living rent free in your head.

Hardcore sucks.

These guys were relevant for like 6 months in 2010. Give it up boys and go work at your dads mechanic shop and pay some taxes
