They done did it.

A few weeks back, Muscadine Bloodline took us back to 1999 with a quick and dirty acoustic cover of Blink 182’s “Adam’s Song,” from the critically acclaimed Enema of The State record.

Those 30 seconds or so garnered some incredible feedback from a number of fans, not unlike myself, who grew up on a mix of country music and punk rock.

Gary and Chuck followed it up with acoustic covers from Yellowcard, Jimmy Eat World, and Mayday Parade, and it was clear that this was bigger than just some Reels…

And the boys delivered.

In an Instagram post, the fellas detailed how their shared love of pop punk was one of the things that brought them together, and how it prompted them to get into the studio with some of these classic emo songs:

“One of many things we both had in common was the music we listened to in our teenage years. You kinda stick out like a sore thumb in South Alabama when you’re jamming Blink 182 at a red light and you get some eye rolls from buddies when Hawthorne Heights came on shuffle between Mike Jones (who?) and Merle Haggard.

But, for some of us, this kind of music tapped into an emotion that can be described as angst. Not to mention, music like Mayday Parade and Taking Back Sunday is where we both learned how to sing harmony.

So the next time you think to yourself, “them Muscadine boys SANG them harmonies,” thank bands like Yellowcard and Jimmy Eat World, deriving from our ‘Teenage Angst.’

We wanted to pay homage to some emo bands we grew up on, except make them ‘us.’

‘Teenage Angst’ comes out tomorrow.”

Come ON with it.

Here’s a taste of Jimmy Eat World’s “Hear You Me”:
