American party punkers Patent Pending’s new daring cover album “Other People’s Greatest Hits” is now officially out via Rude Records. Among the ten covers, fans will be able to listen to the band’s take on hits like Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”, Ricky Martin’s “Livin’ La Vida Loca”, and other contemporary favorites such as the mash-up of Tiesto’s “Wasted” and Avicii’s “Wake Me Up”.

The quintet, who are known for their energetic live show and entertaining covers, reveal how the album came about: “Each song that we chose for this album really helps represent the many different sides of Patent Pending. We’ve always been a band that draws influence from all over the musical spectrum and this project really helped us encapsulate pieces from all of the different genres we love in a half hour of pop-punk chaos! As music can make you feel so many different things and form connections with many songs for various different reasons, the hardest part of the whole thing was deciding which songs to do and choose only 10. We started with a list of 173 potential songs and spent a full week picking away at them, so safe to say this was truly a labour of love…”
