In the runup to their second UK tour (with support act Bowling For Soup somehow playing after them – I can’t figure that out either), Not Ur Girlfrenz continue to prove that they can’t be pigeonholed. Their own songs may be bubblegum punk rock, but drummer Maren Alford has already rocked a version of Slipknot’s “Unsainted” and now they’re showing their emo colours (which are… well… black) with this cover of My Chemical Romance’s “I’m Not OK”.
Liv Haynes (vocal & guitar) explains the reason now was the right time for this track:
We’ve been playing this cover live for about a year now and always get such a great response with the fans… So we thought why not record a version in the studio? With My Chemical Romance getting back together after a 6-year hiatus it just seemed like the perfect time to recreate one of our favourite songs by one of our biggest musical inspirations.
Paint your nails black and get emo with us!
