Good Charlotte share cover of ‘Awful Things’ in tribute to Lil Peep

"Burn me down till I'm nothin' but memories"

Good Charlotte have shared a cover version of Lil Peep‘s ‘Awful Things’.

The band put the song on their official YouTube channel in tribute to Lil Peep, who died after an accidental overdose last month at the age of 21.

Good Charlotte posted a note with the video talking about their love for Lip Peep and the influence he had in his short life.

“Every now and then a new artist comes along, who you know is sure to change music,” they said.

“Lil’ peep was one of those artists. We were excited to find out that we shared a love of the same bands, and that he was a fan of GC.

“We looked forward to the possibility of touring together in the new year, and were excited to share our stories and maybe even make some music together.”

They continued: “There is a feeling of hope and rebellion in his music, for everyone who feels like they might not fit in, that we relate to and that shares a kinship to what gc has always been about.

“This rendition of ‘Awful Things’ was done with love, for Peep, his family, friends and fans, to celebrate his life, talent and career and we hope everyone enjoys it as much as we enjoyed making it.

“Thanks for all the love you shared, Peep. You are missed, but through your art you will live forever.”

A “final interview” with the rapper was later published by Paper magazine and a posthumous video released for his track ‘Save That Shit’.

After taking an extended break, Good Charlotte returned last year with their sixth studio album Youth Authority.
