Lockdown has seen Bowling For Soup host a load of live streams and a handful of cover tracks, and the latest one is of Kid Cudi‘s 2010 single, ‘Erase Me’.
The original version of the song also features a guest appearance from Kanye West, and for their rendition Bowling For Soup brought in Dallas based hip-hop artist 10K.Caash to fulfil that part.
Speaking of their decision to cover the track, frontman Jaret Reddick had this to say.
“I have to say, I can’t take credit for this one! The way we pick covers is somewhat democratic. Band members suggest songs and the good ones float to the top. Last summer, Chris kept suggesting ‘Erase Me’. But when he would bring it up, we couldn’t listen or it was on his phone and there were 1000 distractions. Finally, I got a chance to check it out. And it made total sense to me. The hard part was, who do we get to sing Kanye’s part? So many ideas flew around. I approached our friend Pete Freedman, from the site Central Track. He is super in tune with up and coming Dallas artists. He sent me a few links, and the Minute I clicked on 10K.Caash, I knew he was the guy! 17 year old kid from Dallas, and my kids already know his stuff… bonus points for dad! He absolutely killed on this track! Way to go Chris Burney!”
