As much as I tend to dislike pop punk bands covering other pop punk bands, these guys can do no wrong.

To take the safe route, they decided to release it for free and asked if we wanted to help.

good man. will always love ap.net's undying love for all that is pop punk.

This was really cool.

a little stale sounding since they stuck with songs that have a similar BPM but nonetheless a clever mashup. would have loved to hear Dysentary Gary covered but oh well.

better than everything future idiots has put out

I definitely think they could've got creative by mixing the other tracks in more. They played it safe by using the similar/popular songs, but hey, it was pretty good.

They could have at least done all the variations of the chorus! "Still amused by TV shows", "Still amused by prank phone calls", "Still act like you're in freshmen year", rather than just the first

Eh, didn't really enjoy this all that much. I think the dude who did the acoustic rendition of all their albums was more entertaining. Not terrible though. Will need to listen to the rest of the EP.

Also, I thought the chord from the beginning of "Don't Leave Me" tacked on the end was a nice touch.

This is really cool.

When I heard their Break Stuff cover I had to listen to their back catalogue. I'm now completely obsessed with them. Second Family is great. I hate that I wrote them off after I listened to "Cheer Up Emo Kid"

This is pretty awesome considering how short of a time they had to record this and the other 5 songs. Thanks for getting this out AP!

I highly approve of this, but where's Dysentery Gary?!

During the bridge you can hear them sing. Girls are such a drag.

At first i thought they coveres the whole album. That would be cool to have some Blink covers that arnt total shiet.

Except the bluegrass cover of "Adams Song". That was amazing.

more than a little. despite it being an interesting concept and me absolutely loving this album, this was pretty boring.

i hate myself for saying this, but i have to. maybe try this one more time with feeling?
