You’ve bought all the albums, read all the interviews, and scoured the darkest recesses of the Internet for all things Yellowcard-related (including Buzzworthy, right?). Needless to say, you’re a Yellowcard expert. But we got the Los Angeles-via-Jacksonville, Florida punk-pop quintet in the studio to tell us five things you didn’t know about them.
In the video below, the guys let you in on a ton of info about their favorite movies, sports and music. Turns out three of the five members are the most famous college dropouts not named Kanye. But which one re-enrolled, only to drop out again?
Luckily, a lack of diplomas hasn’t stopped these dudes from being well-rounded. “We actually don’t communicate to one another,” says violinist Sean Mackin. “We talk through movie lines.” (The guys are partial to Anchorman, The Big Lebowski and Swingers, if you’re compiling early Christmas lists.) Lead singer Ryan Key also reveals which movie trailer he was recently in that earned him a spot in the film’s credits, but not the film itself.
Finally, you may’ve already known about the group’s sports obsession, but did you know Key owns a white English bulldog in deference to the Georgia Bulldogs? “I pretty much moved to [Athens, Georgia] to go to football games,” admits Key. Hey, there are way worse reasons to move somewhere.
Check out the full interview below, and watch Yellowcard’s exclusive Buzzworthy performance of “Hang You Up.”
