On April 1, 2016, comedian (and musician) Jarrod Alonge released his second album, Friendville, under the moniker of a fake pop-punk band, Sunrise Skater Kids. The album lampoons and parodies the pop-punk and hardcore music genres. Friendville, which was crowdsource funded by an Indiegogo campaign, went on to success as a Billboard number 1 on the Top Comedy Albums chart.
If you’ve ever tried to crowdfund anything, you’ll know that the avenue is very difficult and competitive. With Friendville, the song that basically got the album funded was “All the Old Things”. The song parodies Fall Out Boy, Lit, Sum 41, Blink 182, A Simple Play, Bowling For Soup, The All-American Rejects, NOFX, Green Day, Yellowcard, and more. It’s a banger. 10/10 excecution.

Alonge has released two albums since Friendville. One is under the moniker Canadian Softball and the other Vermicide Violence. The Canadian Softball album is similar to Friendville and features another pop-punk medley song, which can be found below. The Vermicide Violence record is a brutal hardcore record in the vein of Cradle of Filth.
