There’s a 2005 emo version of Bowling For Soup’s “1985” you need to hear
As we get older, we find ourselves looking back to when we thought things were the best. The classic Bowling For Soup hit describes a time that most of us didn't grow up in. It references U2, Blondie and music still being on MTV (all there is now is 24 hours of Ridiculousness).
While we do love Blondie, a more modern version of the track would be just the ticket to nostalgia central. fntmsage sings about The Used, Superbad, and Manic Panic Hair Dye. He harkens back to a time when we all bought CDs and worried about our Myspace profile song. Check out the cool new version of the song below.

fntmsage said he was surprised by the popularity the video gained. He released another video talking about how he's trying to release a full version of the song as soon as possible. He ends that video with a little throwback that EuroTrip or Lustra fans will be fond of.
@fntmsageShould I do a full version of the "2005 song"? ##fntm ##1985 ##2005 ##poppunk ##bowlingforsoup♬ original sound - fntmsage
Here's a fun fact. "1985" was originally written and recorded by SR-71 and Bowling For Soup covered it. The BFS version reached No. 23 on Billboard's Hot 100.
It's also important to note that Bowling For Soup gave an update to one of their hits back in 2019. The new "Girl All The Bad Guys Want" included references to YUNGBLUD, Bring Me The Horizon, Post Malone and more. Watch that video below.
