A shockingly successful novelty, Me First & the Gimme Gimmes have gotten a surprising amount of mileage out of earnest pop-punk covers of songs from genres as diverse as country and show tunes. They got their start, however, with their first album, HAVE A BALL, which featured soft-rocking songs from the 70s and 80s. To celebrate its 10-year anniversary, they've released all the material from the original sessions on HAVE ANOTHER BALL. Sped-up versions of songs your mom loves, such as Hall & Oates's "Rich Girl" and James Taylor's "You've Got a Friend" whiz by with a snarky wink.
Kerrang (Magazine) (p.51) - "[B]lending the Ramones' 'Blitzkrieg Bop' into James Taylor's 'You've Got A Friend' is a stroke of genius."
