You'd Be Super Insane to Miss SuperNaked
The band SuperNaked is super talented, they super rock, and their funny ass lyrics would make your parents super cringe. Since we are super running out of super-puns, let's get into the interview that we had with Lee and Luke of SuperNaked. Oh wait, we thought of one more. You're going to be super bummed if you miss them (along with a super line-up of comics) at The Refinery in Huntington Beach on July 22. OK, we're done.
We kind of learned the hard way.
OC Weekly (Ali Lerman): First off, this is like the best three way ever! I'm, as the cool kids would say, #Blessed. That aside, give me the backstory of how you guys met up.
Lee: [Laughs.] You're filthy. I like it. I produced music and often times I would meet wonderful musicians who could somehow play better than I can so I would befriend them and have them play on my records. Some of the time I try to have them do it for favors but most of the time, I pay them. Then I ended up with this gang of dudes and now they're all buddies. So we formed a situation where I was able to go and perform some of my original tunes for fun. Through rehearsing those songs, we started to find a lot of really fun and humorous things to talk about. At that time, we were going to call ourselves "The Jizzards."
Wait. Like jizz?
Lee: Exactly! We were gonna be like that band that left seven years ago because they couldn't pay rent so they went out to do gigs. But they just stayed on the road and never returned but now they're back in town for one night only.
I see. Luke, did you want to add anything to that?
Luke: Nope. So far so good.
Perfect. Can you tell me how Drake Bell ended up in your music video?
Lee: Well eventually we had a bass player Rafe Bradford start showing up to these jam sessions and as we were playing these shows, there was this song that Luke and I had written called "Terrible Person." It turned out to be such an insane song, we decided to make a music video. By the way, we're shooting a video and we didn't even have a band name. So my buddy Drake Bell wanted to use the song for his record and I was like, no, but you can be in the video and he said yes! It's crazy because it's a comedic song filled with things that you think but you wouldn't say out loud like, "I hate your guts" and a heartfelt, "kill yourself." [Laughs.] For some reason, it turned into something that people laughed at.
Ahhh gotcha. I also noticed you love to harass him on Twitter which I find hilarious.
Lee: That's Luke. [Laughs.] If you know Drake, you know he's just an easy target. He also doesn't really care and you can't upset him as long as you're not hitting his mom. He can take it and dish it right back out. He's actually very witty. So he wouldn't tweet our video because it was sort of vulgar, which I completely understood but then, he released a video for his song "Bitchcraft" and in this video, boobies! And they are really weird boobies by the way. So when we saw that he had this explicit video we were like, hey, you wouldn't tweet our video because we have strong content but your song also has strong content? It's called "Bitchcraft!" Saying fuck and seeing boobies are kind of in the same school you know? So we started to harass him.
