This is what happens when two emo bands collide.

The All-American Rejects and Dashboard Confessional are about to set off on tour together, so they thought it'd be cool to put their own stamp on each other's hit songs.

Dashboard Confessional took on AAR's 'Move Along', telling Consequence Of Sound, "We had a blast making 'Move Along' ours. The song has so much color and power it was easy to feel inspired by it."

Listen to it below.

And The All-American Rejects gave Dashboard's 'Hands Down' a bit of a twist, with frontman Tyson Ritter explaining, "In the original recording, the vocal performance is something that carries you through that tale of pure discovery.

"Vocally, my immediate intention was to play the opposite. For the musical canvas, we wanted to take all the candy away from this song and feed it nothing but opiates, leaving you feeling as if the instrumentation itself was the nerves the lyrics were expressing."

Here's how it turned out.

The All-American Rejects have also recently released a short film called 'Sweat', which features two new songs.

Check it out below.
