Here’s Proof That Genre-Crossing Guest Vocals RULE

Stepping outside your lane isn't always a bad thing, you know?

On Neck Deep's new album 'The Peace And The Panic', Sam Carter of Architects fame makes an appearance on the riproaring 'Don't Wait'.



So in light of such a banger, here are the some of the times an artist jumped genre to guest star on a song and absolutely smashed it.

ALL TIME LOW FT. TEGAN & SARA - 'GROUND CONTROL'
What do you get when you cross one of the biggest rock bands in the world with one of the biggest duos in pop? This slow burning epic, that's what. 



YOU ME AT SIX FT. WINSTON MCCALL - 'TIME IS MONEY'
You Me At Six love bringing in someone to add a little bit of grit to their songs. They've borrowed the expertise of The Blackout's Sean Smith and Bring Me The Horizon's Oli Sykes in the past. Yet it's this cut featuring the Parkway Drive frontman that really hits the spot.




FALL OUT BOY FT. EVERYONE
Fall Out Boy love a guest spot. Be it one of the most distinct voices in rap or the best songwriter of the past 50 years, no genre is too far-fetched. Look at them all!

DEMI LOVATO - 'IRRESISTIBLE'


ELTON JOHN - 'SAVE ROCK AND ROLL'


BIG SEAN - 'THE MIGHTY FALL'


FOXES - 'JUST ONE YESTERDAY'


MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE FT. LIZA MINNELLI - 'MAMA'
Though she only sings one line, 'Mama' wouldn't be the same without the haunting vocals of Liza Minnelli clashing with Gerard Way before all hell breaks loose. 



BRING ME THE HORIZON FT. LIGHTS - 'DON'T GO'
When Bring Me The Horizon are at both their most atmospheric and brutal, who better to add an extra layer of heartbreak than the wonderful Lights?



SLEEPING WITH SIRENS FT. MGK - 'ALONE'
Kellin Quinn has also put his vocals to good use on Machine Gun Kelly's 'Swing Life Away', but The Gunner's verse on this stone cold banger is too good to ignore. 



EVERY TIME I DIE FT. BRENDON URIE - 'IT REMEMBERS'
One of the most unlikely but also perfectly suited combinations that has ever been conceived. Brendon + riffs = one big fire emoji.
