MGK Foreshadows Pop Punk Album With Blink 182 Cover At The Chance
Machine Gun Kelly is best known as a hip-hop artist but he's redefined himself with a new pop-punk album that is getting some good reviews. The change in vibe seemingly came out of nowhere but maybe he's been planning this longer than we thought after footage of him covering a Blink 182 classic from a 2012 Chance Theater show in Poughkeepsie has surfaced.
Machine Gun Kelly rocked The Chance Theater on June 13, 2012. In the grainy video, he can be seen surrounded by female fans while he whips the crowd into a frenzy for the cover of 'What's My Age Again'. From there he moves on to one of his hip hop tracks 'Wild Boy'. Be aware that the footage isn't exactly steady and there is some not safe for work (NSFW) language in the video. But it's clear people were having fun and it might be worth checking out what he's up to now.
The new album Tickets To My Downfall is out and is a collaboration with Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker. Barker serves as both drummer and producer on the project. Check out the latest single 'my ex's best friend' below.
Machine Gun Kelly aka Colson Baker got into the acting game in 2019 when he played Motley Crue drummer Tony Lee in the biopic 'The Dirt'. He recently won an MTV Video Music Award for the video for 'Bloody Valentine' starring Megan Fox.
