Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker put a sinister spin on Edwyn Collins' "A Girl Like You." Their dark rendition of the 1994 hit is featured in the final trailer for Paradise City, a new series that's set to premiere on Amazon Prime Thursday (March 25).
The show is a spinoff of 2017's American Satan and its all-star cast features musicians like Black Veil Brides’ Andy Biersack, Asking Alexandria’s Ben Bruce and Lamb of God's Randy Blythe, as well as Bella Thorne and Cameron Boyce in his last role before his tragic death in 2019.
"The lives of a rock star with ties to the occult and a young rookie kid who idolizes him collide through their broken homes built by the music business," reads the show's YouTube description.

This is the latest collaboration between MGK and Barker but far from the first (or the last). Last year, the blink-182 drummer produced the rapper-turned-rocker's chart-topping pop punk debut, Tickets to My Downfall and helped create its accompanying film, Downfalls High. Last summer, they covered Rage Against The Machine's "Killing in the Name" and shared footage from Black Lives Matter protests, and in November MGK revealed they were working on new music together.
