Teen Idols (Matt)

Interviews | Feb 24th, 2005

How does your new album “Nothing to Prove” compare to your other releases?
The songs are a little more dynamic, but it still has that Teen Idols sound we always shoot for. Our long time fans seem to love it, but are a little thrown off at first listen. That just because we have more mid tempo songs on this record I think. This is by far my favorite record, we had a really fun time making it.

Surely the Beach Boys are one of your influences, but what about David Cassidy?
More Beatles than David Cassidy, that’s for sure!!

Do you think AC Slater could kick Zack Morris’ ass? or do you think Screech could take them both?
I think Screech had a lot of pent up frustration, so I think he could take them.

What’s your favorite Ralph Macchio movie?
The first Karate Kid

Corey Feldman or Corey Haim?
They have to be together, without that you wouldn’t have Lost Boys.

Is Leif Garrett punk rock?
Hell no!!

Which New Kids on the Block member was the hottest?
Ooh, that’s a tough one. I’d say none of them.

Did you think Hanson were a bunch of chicks when you first saw their music video?
Yeah, I thought they were really hot.

Do you use “whoa” a lot in your songs because of Joey Lawrence?
For sure, you can’t beat Blossom!!

Thanks for doing this retarded interview, The new album is freakin’ awesome. Got anything to plug like a tour or something?
Thanks for the questions. We’re touring all over the world from now until Christmas, so come out and say hi. And pick up Nothing To Prove when you get the chance.
