Watch: Yellowcard Cover Katy Perry

It seems as though Yellowcard has followed the trend of reinterpreting Katy Perry's "E.T," a challenge that Kanye West and the Kardashians have battled with previously. A collaboration created for Billboard's "Mashup Mondays," Yellowcard offers a clean and original approach to the overplayed pop song. Yellowcard's acoustic interpretation incorporates violins to compensate for the synths that are present in Perry's version. The parity between the sharpened sounds of the violin and guitar provide a textured layering of instruments, one that Perry's song may be devoid of for some more focused listeners. Lead vocalist Ryan Key offers an insightful opinion on Perry's song, "where everybody is regurgitating the same crap, this song stands out to me." While this may be true, Yellowcard has remained consistent with the original melody, while accentuating the elements of this song that stand out, offering a completely refreshing take, ironically sponsored by a refreshing chewy fruit candy.
