All Time Low and blink-182 fans are well aware that the bands share a pretty similar song title. Now, Alex Gaskarth has revealed a “True Story” regarding ATL’s “A Party Song (The Walk of Shame)” and blink’s “The Party Song.”

Find out why the band changed the track’s title, below!

Earlier today Gaskarth took to Twitter to post a poll, asking fans to choose between “A Party Song” and “Keep The Change.”

Of course, scene dad and blink-182 frontman Mark Hoppus had to cast his vote.

“Party song, but the blink-182 one.”

The retweet sparked Gaskarth to share a bit of a fun fact behind the track’s title and how it was almost named “Party Song.”

“True story: we were gonna call it ‘Party Song’ and then Jack reminded me that blink already had a song by that name, so it became ‘A Party Song’ (since it would never be the definitive Party Song, just one of several.)”

The fun fact opened an entirely new wave of “Party Song” replies from fans.

In case you need a refresher, you can check out both of these party jams below!

In other blink news, the band announced a pretty epic tour with Lil Wayne and Neck Deep.

The new dates join their already busy festival season, which includes a confirmed appearance at Warped Tour‘s 25th anniversary stop in Atlantic City (for which more tickets were just released). They also promised a return to Riot Fest this year after having to cancel last year’s set.

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
