Punk Goes Pop 2 ExcerptSo as you know, we decided to record "When I Grow Up" by the Pussycat Dolls. Originally we were going to do "Wannabe" by the Spice Girls, but the more we practiced it the more we disliked where the song was going. So a couple of days before we headed into the studio we decided to change the song, which turned out for the best. When heading into the studio we weren't really sure how the song was going to turn out, we hoped for the best, but with only a few days of practice we had no idea what the final result would be.
We recorded the song in Valdosta, GA at Earthsound Recording, with the same producer/engineer (Lee Dyess) who recorded our E.P. "Tales Told By Dead Friends". He is an awesome guy, and he really brings out the best in us, so we knew we were in for a good time. Upon arriving we got down to business, and with Lee to help point us in the right direction, we recorded a great cover song in just 2 days.

From what I heard of the Pussycat song, maybe they shouldve stuck with the Spice Girls one

Don't songs have to be popular before they are covered by other bands?

This actually turned out a lot better than I thought it would. It's not anything amazing, but it's also not complete shit.

Yea, just because the song was atrocious doesn't mean it wasn't popular. You can't be that elite.
