Goody Grace has continued his collaboration hot streak with “Scumbag,” linking up with his favorite band, blink-182. The Canadian singer and songwriter has been a big fan forever, somehow turning a backstage meeting into a hit single, but it has been years in the making.
“I ran into Travis briefly once at a show backstage and introduced myself,” he tells RADIO.COM. “It was nothing crazy, but we exchanged information, he followed me on social media. We didn’t talk for probably like a year, and then he messaged me on twitter and was like ‘yo are you in LA?’ And I was like, ‘yeah man, we got to get in the studio. I want to play you music.’ And he’s like, ‘yeah for sure, but could you come to Vegas this weekend and open for us?’”
Goody Grace, who grew up on the Pop Punk icons, was now sharing the same stage with them. However, the best was still to come, continuing the relationship and getting the group on “Scumbag.”
“I was like, ‘Mark will you sing on it as well?’ So we got in the studio. He came with me and The Futuristics and we wrote the whole little bridge part.”
“The whole song is just me on guitar, Mark on bass, and Travis on drums.”
Knowing that he’s such a huge fan, we had to put him to the test. Check out the exclusive video above as Goody Grace tries his hand at blink-182 trivia.
