According this screen shot of a MySpace bulletin (which ranks slightly above the roadside ramblings of homeless alcoholics on the scale of reliability), Christofer Drew, better known as NeverShoutNever!, will be recording a cover of Queen’s classic hit “Bohemian Rhapsody” for the Punk Goes Classic Rock Compilation due out sometime in the future (read: hopefully never). One record label executive, who wises to remain anonymous, says that recording of the cover is going very well and if Drew keeps up his hard work, the entirety of music could be destroyed by the end of the year.

Yes, I’m being a little overdramatic, but you should know how this goes by now. I don’t particularly dislike NeverShoutNever! but having a universally despised scene hippy who’s known for writing acoustic songs cheesy enough to constipate “Hey There, Delilah” record a cover of the original epic rock song is a move that is, at best, perplexing. Also, I may be beating a dead horse here, but in what way is NeverShoutNever punk? You can cry all day about punk being “subjective” or “more of an aesthetic than a sound” but if you’re going to throw NeverShoutNever! into the genre, then we might as well consider John Mayer the next Johnny Rotten.

How about Punk Goes Away?
