I’ve always loved Patent Pending. Two summers ago, I discovered their music on Spotify when searching for a new punk band. I’ve been in love ever since. They are super funny (“Douchebag” and “Cheer Up Emo Kid”), yet can still bring in the right amount of emotion (compassion = “One less Heart to Break” and slight disgust = “Cut,Copy, Paste”). It’s everything I liked about Blink 182 and Bowling for Soup and all those other punk bands that seemed to die away.
Their most recent album featured a song called “Hey, Mario”. BEST SONG EVAR. I mean… go listen for yourself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZeR-vxREvw. I think Patent Pending realized the genius. So now they are taking the creativity to a new level. Doing as punk does, and make a joke out of it all: Mock Documentary
Basically, Mario and the Brick-breakers have “published” an album which is soaring the charts. Tracks 1, 2, 5, and 6 are definitely more my style… but the lyrics are all amazing. WHO comes up with this SH!# ? It’s kind of awesome. The album is only a few dollars. I suggest you go buy it and support this band. Because… there aren’t very many punk bands out there who are this good.
