More on Bowling For Soup
Last year, frontman Jaret Reddick got in front of the APTV cameras to discuss the making of Bowling For Soup’s pivotal album, A Hangover You Don’t Deserve. The album, starring the classic single “1985,” turned 15 in 2019, and the singer was more than happy to share his memories of its creation, from the subject matter, working with artist/producer Butch Walker and where his headspace was when he was making it.
Reddick discusses the history of “1985” (which was written by SR-71’s Mitch Allan) and how it continues to be relevant. “I think it’s one of those things where it doesn’t matter what generation you are. You’re always going to be the uncool parent when you get to that point,” he says. “People will come up to me all the time and say, ‘I am Debbie.’ And I’ll be like, ‘Hi Debbie.’” Check out the full interview here.
