With their recently announced covers album Don’t Mind If We Do now out for everyone’s enjoyment, Texas’ favourite pop punk quartet Bowling For Soup are bringing you a brand new single from the record. 

Hey Mario, originally a hit for Bowling For Soup bassist Rob Felicetti’s former band Patent Pending, has been given a Bowling For Soup makeover – just in time for the release of the new Super Mario Bros movie! 

The video for Hey Mario features Bowling For Soup attempting to lift the spirits of Mario in a variety of ways – some more traditional for Mario than others! Check out the video here:

Don’t Mind If We Do, released on the 4th of April 2023 through Que-So / Brando Records, is a collection of covers recorded by Bowling For Soup in recent times, along with a couple of new covers.

Featuring songs from a wide variety of artists ranging from Hanson to Kanye West to Social Distortion, genres are no barriers when it comes to a great Bowling For Soup cover. The album also features two brand new covers – Hey Mario, and the biggest song of 2023 so far, Miley Cyrus’ Flowers.

The full track listing and artwork for the album can be found below:

We hand over to Bowling For Soup main man Jaret Reddick to explain more about Don’t Mind If We Do:

“When I saw the preview for the new Mario movie, the first thing that popped in my head was that our friends Patent Pending had an amazing tune called “Hey Mario.” And on top of that, Rob had co-written that song when he was in that band! It seemed like a no brainer to do a BFS version of this awesome song around the time Mario was fresh in everyone’s head again! 

I have to give credit to our amazing management team for the covers album idea. They came to me after we release “Flowers” and said “we should gather up all these latest cover songs and do something digitally…how about a covers album!”

First of all, I was pissed because it wasn’t my idea. But soon after, I rallied and the title came right into my head! We pick and choose covers like we would ‘hors d’oeuvres’. Our little hands dangling over the tray…Don’t Mind If We Do!” 
As mentioned above, in addition to their new single Hey Mario, Bowling For Soup have recently released an epic cover of Miley Cyrus’ Flowers, which you can check out below:
