5SOS, All Time Low, Good Charlotte & Simple Plan Team Up For Charity Christmas Cover

Have you ever found yourself thinking, "Man, holiday songs are great--I just wish Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low was the one signing them to me"? You're in luck. The guy partnered up with the Ryan Seacrest Foundation to record a cover of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" for charity. It was obviously going to be awesome, but Gaskarth went above and beyond: The thing is star-studded.

The track was recorded by Goldfinger frontman John Feldmann, who also sings on the song. Oh, and Joel Madden of Good Charlotte, Ashton Irwin of 5 Seconds of Summer and Pierre Bouvier of Simple Plan are also on it. Can your heart even take it? Can you even?

Gaskarth shared the track on Facebook:

"Hello my loves! Around this time last year, me and some good friends thought it'd be fun to record a holiday jam for the world to hear. We lit a fire, made hot chocolate, and put our musical spin on a holiday classic, with producer genius, John Feldmann at the helm!
We all knew we wanted to do something special with it to help people, so we decided to wait until this year to give everyone a listen! We've been working with Ryan Seacrest Foundation to raise money for an amazingcause, so we ask that in return for this track, you donate whatever you can spare to the foundation. Please follow the links and give whatever you can! Big thanks to Ashton (5 Seconds of Summer), Joel (Good Charlotte), Pierre (Simple Plan), and John (Goldfinger) for collaborating on this with me! Holiday super groups are the best kind! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and thanks for listening! Hope you enjoy! Xo Alex"
