Bowling for Soup Interview

For this week's 2&2 we speak with Jaret from Bowling for Soup about the band's brand new CD The Great Burrito Extortion Case

2&2: You've probably been asked this a million times but for those that don't know, where did your name come from?

Jaret: We got it off a Steve Martin comedy album from 1978….It was supposed to be temporary, but we never got around to changing it…

2&2: Aside from being the name of our album, what is "The Great Burrito Extortion Case"?

Jaret: It is an actual case where someone tried to claim a mouse was in their burrito at a Mexican fast food place

2&2: Favorite tracks from the CD?

Jaret: Epiphany, I'm Gay, when we Die

2&2: Your 1st single "High School Never Ends" is great indictment of the superficial popular culture. What inspired that song? 

Jaret: It just says it like it is…Social politics never really evolve after high school and then we live vicariously through the tabloids…It's really kinda depressing actually…

2&2: You guys are known not only for your sense of humor but for your live shows, have you nailed down any tour plans behind the new album? Or is it too soon to let the cat outta the bag? 

Jaret: We will be on the road for the next 18 months on and off….We really never stop!!

2&2: Final Question. This may seem a bit out of left field, but can you confirm this story from the wikipedia on your band? "When the band's manager discovered "Girl All The Bad Guys Want" was nominated for a Grammy Award he then called Jaret who was waiting in the delivery room with his wife awaiting the birth of his daughter"? 

Jaret: That is actually a true story…It was an amazing day!!!
