Remember this guy?
He took Blink 182’s “First Date” and made it into a pretty decent country song, as well as Dixie Chicks’ “Wide Open Spaces.” And, he gained some viral popularity online in the process.
And now, he’s at it again.
Recorded from his unfinished bathroom, Alex Melton took Fall Out Boy’s “Sugar, We’re Going Down” and turned it into “Sugar, We’re Going Down Yonder.” And honestly, this one might work even better…
Alex has created quite the online fanbase for these genre changed covers, and I’m here for it.
Yeah it’s a little corny, but it’s also a little catchy and has got me singing along.
He’s done a few of these crazy popular early 2000’s songs and made them into a kind of country song, but “Sugar, We’re Going Down Yonder” might just have the best flow to it.
What do you guys think of these covers?
A little Taking Back Sunday…
