Patent Pending reveal covers album ‘Other People’s Greatest Hits’

Just as the New York Pop-punks, Patent Pending, head out for their UK tour they go ahead and announce a huge covers album.

The record is entitled Other People’s Greatest Hits which features 10 cover versions ranging from Ed Sheeran and Little Mix to Rick Astly and Ricky Martin. The first track from the album, ‘Spice Up Your Life’ (originally by Spice Girls) is available to stream below:

Vocalist Joe Ragosta had this to say:

“As soon as we decided to do this project we knew we wanted to do a Spice Girls song. We all grew up loving them. We actually had a copy of the movie in our old tour bus that we used to watch on repeat at one point. Other than our love for the Spice Girls we also wanted to do one of their songs because they truly represent girl power. In times like these where women are being treated terribly and there is turmoil both with our new government here in the USA and many other places around the world, I think we could all use a little more Girl Power. While listening to the Spice Girls catalogue to decide on a song to do we noticed that Spice Up Your Life is a really heavy song musically! Kind of reminded us of a My Chemical Romance vibe. It turns out that if you switch the synths for guitars and make the song a little angrier you get the gnarliest and probably heaviest Patent Pending recording of all time. This song was one of my favourite recording sessions of my entire life”
