Good Charlotte Are Back, Join Waka Flocka Flame for "Game On"

File this under rap/rock collaborations we never would've anticipated! Wiz KhalifaFall Out Boy whoWaka Flocka Flame has enlisted the help of California-via-Maryland pop-punk legends Good Charlotte for "Game On," the theme song for the upcoming Sony Pictures production, Pixels, featuring Adam Sandler, Michelle Monaghan, and Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage and Sean Bean.

The song sounds something like a Fall Out Boy original, but breathes new life with Waka's raspy verses. According to Complex, the reason the tune features the retro bleeps and bloops in the flick is because of producers KoOoLkOjAk and Nicholas ‘RAS’ Furlong, who threw some video game sounds onto the already anthemic tune. 

The song starts with the Madden Brothers singing alongside Waka: 

This is not a game
Nobody can save you
Spent up all your change
Now your turn is done

We won't be afraid
Because we're the ones who made you
Knock you out the frame
We won't stop till you're gone
Game on

It's definitely the kind of jam to pump you up. Perhaps most interesting about all of this isn't the unusual pairing, but the fact that this is Good Charlotte's first release under the GC moniker since 2010's Cardiology. The twins have been in the studio with 5 Seconds of Summer and One Direction and released an album under the Madden Brothers title, but this marks the official return of GC.
