Quote from rockclan : My own mediocre but quite brutal vocal cover of Linkin Park's "Given Up". Needed to vent after bad news after bad news, did a raw/unedited vocal recording, sounded ok after mixing it with backings, decided to release it. Venting pain and frustrations in a creative manner for once.. Ha ha ha! That's cool dude. And hey. It still beats the crap outta Taylor Swift.
