ABSOLUTExclusive: Patent Pending Covers Blink 182's...

Posted by: Alex DiVincenzo (12/13/12)
You may have noticed a glaring omission from Patent Pending's Spring Break '99 EP. Sure, they covered such classic artists as Limp Bizkit, Backstreet Boys and Smash Mouth, but when I think of music from 1999, Blink 182's Enema of the State is the first to come to mind. Rather than choose one song from the pop punk classic, Patent Pending recorded a medley of all 12 tracks. Due to legal complications, the band is giving the song away for free. Head to the replies to stream and download the medley.

For me, Black Sails in the Sunset is the first thing that jumps to mind when I hear 1999.

I'm a little disappointed that it's mostly just the singles, but still pretty cool.

Not bad. I would've preferred if they didn't keep coming back to the What's My Age Again chorus.

I really want to like this, but... something is just off about it. I feel like it would have been better if they just covered one of the songs. Nice attempt though.

"due to legal confusion..?" why would a band try to sell something like this? maybe it's just me but doing a medley of an album with no artistic changes (other than making mashing it up into a medley) doesn't seem like something that should even be attempted to be sold..? aside from that, this was okay.. i dunno how you can start an 'Enema of the State' medley with anything but 'Dumpweed.' Also, this felt more like a medley of the radio singles rather than the entire album with just hints at the remaining tracks. Aside from that, yea it worked.

The released an EP of cover songs from 1999. They knew a pop punk band covering a pop punk song would be boring, so they thought a medley would be more interesting. But the legalities of selling a medley - one song containing parts of 12 different songs to varying degrees - proved to be too confusing for even their lawyer to figure out. To take the safe route, they decided to release it for free and asked if we wanted to help.
