Album Review: “Other People’s Greatest Hits” By Patent Pending

Patent Pending have made a name for themselves through relentless touring and their high energy live shows earning them fans around the globe!  The Long Island group are releasing a cover album on May 26th titled “Other People’s Greatest Hits.”   It’s a nostalgic trip from 1995 thru today including hits from Miley Cyrus to Spice Girls – just watch out, they aren’t trying to Rick Roll you just yet.

The band always put their own twist on anything they cover, making each song their own. We’ve heard them play so many awesome covers over the years but nothing prepared us for the collection they’re about to share with the world.

PTPG tapped into their inner divas on “Shout Out To My Ex,” show their Latin side with “Livin La Vida Loca,” turn into EDM stars on an incredibly catchy mashup of “Wasted/Wake Me Up ” by Tiesto & Avicii, and turn into Jersey Boy Frankie Valli with “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.”

Our favorite cover is the very last track, “See You Again” by Miley Cyrus.  The song is still a jam on it’s own but PTPG somehow made it even better!

Whether you like pop punk, EDM or straight up pop music, Patent Pending’s “Other People’s Greatest Hits” is an album the whole family can listen to on repeat.

Listen to “Livin La Vida Loca” below.

Patent Pending Release “Mario & The Brick Breakers”

When it came time for Long Island pop punk band Patent Pending to make a video for their hit single “Hey Mario” they decided to take the Rainbow Road less traveled.  The band figured – why not form a fake band and make a documentary showcasing the rise and fall of said fake band, Spinal Tap style.  Thus “Mario & The Brick Breakers” came to be.  Not being a band to do anything half way, they even created a “Mario & The Brick Breakers: Greatest Hits EP” to go along with the 30 minute documentary that will be broken up into 5 separate videos.    Watch the “Mario & The Brick Breakers” documentary trailer below!

One reason we love Patent Pending is how into everything they get.  Each band member showed some serious commitment in really becoming their Smash Bros. character!

You can get a copy of Mario & The Brick Breakers Greatest Hits EP using the links below.  Help get the album to the top of the charts!
