Working under the moniker "Nothing and Nobody," Mark Hoppus teamed up with friend and engineer/producer Chris Holmes to strip down Nova Rockafeller's ode to the Gameboy decade, "1990s." Where the original features a fair amount of video game influenced bleeps and bloops and mechanical drums, Hoppus and Holmes opted for live instrumentation, giving the track a raw rock 'n' roll feel that would make the '90s...

A song like "Ska Sucks" was never supposed to be played outside of Winnipeg. We had written the song just to piss off local skinheads who for some reason identified heavily with ska music in the early ‘90s.

Now it's the proverbial albatross around our necks for the rest of our lives.
