Groundscore: My Best Friend's Mosh Pit
Groundscore story time!
I've always had a penchant for story songs -- ya know, tunes where the lyrics have a beginning, middle, and end. My Best Friend's Mosh Pit is the story of one punk's transformation from n00b into hardcore.
Truthfully, I've never really been that into punk music. Even when I was writing and recording these Groundscore songs, I think I spent more time listening to James Brown and Billy Joel than the Gotohells or NOFX. But punk rock is the kind of music my friends wanted to make, and it was lots of fun to play, so I made it too.
I'm singing and playing bass, Zach's playing guitar, and Conrad's on drums. To me, that always felt like the most natural set up, though I really enjoyed playing drums with these guys as well.
But wait! This track isn't completely rooted in punk... the name of the song and its final refrain are inspired by The Cars hit My Best Friend's Girl. (As if that wasn't already painfully obviously...)
Next week, I'm proud to bring you the only cover song ever recorded by Groundscore... a hardcore version of "Oops!... I Did It Again"!
