Put down that hot cup of coffee before you spill it everywhere folks… in case you didn’t know, Girl All The Bad Guys Want is now 17 years old!!
Yes, Bowling For Soup’s absolute ANTHEM about chasing after their dream girl came out back in 2002!!
So, has it aged well? Tbh, yes, obviously. BUT some of the lyrics are now a little… out of date. What even is a two-way?? (Jared has answered it: a pager!)
Fortunately, whilst at Reading and Leeds Festival the guys met up with Radio 1 and had a go at updating the song for 2019 – cue references to Snapchat, Insta and Post Malone…
Tbf, it’s GOLD.
“8 o clock Monday night and I’m on Tinder, I swipe right on a girl a little cooler than me. Her name is Ava she’s got a choker and a lip kit, she likes Yungblood but I’m not quite sure who that is”
Who’s up for a campaign for an updated recording?? Let’s get this bad boy to Number 1!!
'Cause she’s watchin' UFC, liking guys with neck tats! Listening to Bring Me, got Post Malone on snapchat! 🤣We got Bowling For Soup to record a 2019 version of Girl All The Bad Guys Want and it might be the best thing you see today 😂
