It's been twenty years of butt jokes and punk rock for the Dallas band, Bowling for Soup, and in honor of such a momentous benchmark the band is releasing a best-of compilation, Songs that People Actually Liked: Volume 1 (1994-2003). The album is out this week and is kind of amazing. Jaret Reddick, singer and guitarist for the band, took some time to answer a few questions about Bowling for Soup's rise to punk rock-dom. Check out the interview here.
I have waves of times where I wonder what we will do next. but every time we have any sort of break, my mind goes crazy with ideas for our next move. I used to always say, “I can’t imagine being 40 and playing songs about farting and high...

Empire! Empire! had a truck crash into their house.
A giant pick-up truck barreling through your house and car at a very high speed does a lot of damage and complicates life to a ridiculous point. Since then, we have been on roller coaster after roller coaster, trying to get things back in order and also seeing if it was going to even be a possibility to go out on tour. Setting house stuff aside- there is now no longer a gaping hole and our house is now not being supported by a large, Chevy truck, but there are still many things to fix- we still have to deal with issues with our van. The insurance company won't let us move it- let alone use it for tour, and things aren't moving fast...

Mike Kinsella had his guitars stolen.
A likely scenario, he thinks, is this: The same person or persons who stole the garage door opener from his street-parked car early last week walked down the alley behind his home, clicked said opener until it worked and made off with the axes: a Fender American Telecaster 72′ Custom Classic Player series and Fender American Tele-Sonic.

It would be easy to overwhelm you with descriptions of what Blind Mice sounds like. The New Bedford, MA-based band, which features Half Hearted Hero guitarist AJ Mills and former Ra Ra Riot drummer Michael Ashley, takes cues from a lot of '90s alt-rock, but I also hear a lot of more modern punk-rock in their new song, "Fifteen," which we're premiering in the replies. The easiest comparison to point to would be Polar Bear Club, with those gruff vocals paving the way -- but by no means is this band ripping off anything, incorporating shades of Jimmy Eat World and Third Eye Blind into their new EP, Sunday Songs. That release drops on March 17 via Animal Style Records, and you can pre-order...

We're excited to premiere a song from Young Pioneer, a new unsigned rock band from Michigan. For fans of Cartel and Acceptance, the band brings a straight-forward approach to rock that's worth getting excited about. If you'd like to check them out live, you can see them at the Pontiac, MI date of the Glamour Kills Tour, featuring headliners Set It Off. You can check out "Let's Be Alive" in the replies.

Alternative Press has talked with Mark Hoppus of Blink-182.
We haven’t played a show with Matt yet, so it’s too soon to really say what goes beyond on that. We’re very optimistic and excited about the possibilities of continuing with Matt in some way. He’s a good friend, a great guitarist, a great singer. He has a really positive attitude. I think we’ve been friends for, what, 15 years? We don’t have anything booked beyond that, but we are hopeful and excited.
