Acoustic Corner: State Champs Cover Paramore’s “Playing God”

The newcomers and now favorites to the pop punk scene, State Champs covered one of our all time  favorite bands…Paramore. The iconic song “Playing God” originally belted out by fiery red-head frontwoman, Hayley Williams, is now altered to the vocal range of Derek Discanio, and the acoustic rendition is something of all pop punk dreams.

Make sure to watch the video below of State Champ’s cover of “Playing God” :
