Pierce The Veil – “Karma Police” (Radiohead Cover)

Last week, Stereogum published Eli Enis’ thorough and depressing survey of the current state of big-room metal. Shit is bleak out there! In this corner of the internet, many of us have been pointedly ignoring this stuff for a long time, but it exists, and it’s more popular than
