Published Jun 26, 2020You know it's been too long of a week when it's Friday afternoon and you get an email that strangely omnipresent Texas pop-punk group Bowling for Soup have just covered a 10-year-old Kid Cudi song. But if I had to watch this cover, then so do you.
The band have spent their time in quarantine covering songs from the likes of the Eagles, Social Distortion, Eddie Money and Suicide Machines. Their latest offering is a take on Cudi's 2010 song "Erase Me," and they brought on rapper 10k.Caash to perform Kanye West's verse.
Bowling for Soup frontman Jaret Reddick shared the following about the cover:
I have to say, I can't take credit for this one! The way we pick covers is somewhat democratic. Band members suggest songs and the good ones float to the top. Last summer, Chris kept suggesting "Erase Me." But when he would bring it up, we couldn't listen or it was on his phone and there were 1000 distractions. Finally, I got a chance to check it out. And it made total sense to me. The hard part was, who do we get to sing Kanye's part? So many ideas flew around. I approached our friend Pete Freedman, from the site Central Track. He is super in tune with up and coming Dallas artists. He sent me a few links, and the Minute I clicked on 10K.Caash, I knew he was the guy! 17 year old kid from Dallas, and my kids already know his stuff…Bonus points for dad! He absolutely killed on this track! Way to go Chris Burney!"
