Melodic pop punk rockers PATENT PENDING release new video for Wasted/Wake Me Up

1 min read

The new insanely funny PATENT PENDING‘s video single ‘Wasted / Wake Me Up’, taken from Other People’s Greatest Hits, is a mash-up of Tiesto’s “Wasted” and Avicii’s “Wake Me Up.” Front man Joe Ragosta says, “It’s very common and very easy for people to overlook EDM music. We wanted to make these two songs rock so people who would much prefer rock to EDM could hear these tremendous melodies and catchy sing along parts in a more familiar way.” The video for “Wasted / Wake Me Up” shows Ragosta in his paint-splattered bedroom. A tennis racket flies off the wall, he smashes a guitar, and he uses a water gun to squirt even more paint all over the walls. It’s a blast to watch – oh, and it’s done entirely in reverse, with back-and-forth boomerang-style clips throughout.

The band’s latest offering Other People’s Greatest Hits, out on Rude Records, is a ten-track cover album that runs the gamut from current chart-toppers to classic hits in an impressive variety of genres. It features their takes on Ricky Martin’s “Livin’ La Vida Loca”, Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You”, and many more…

With a knack for writing ridiculously catchy songs combined with a DIY punk ethos, Long Island rockers Patent Pending truly encapsulate what pop-punk is all about. From basements to festivals to countless cross-country and international tours, Patent Pending are equally known for their ability to make a serious emotional connection with fans and their ability to make them dance.
