Bamboozle 2012: The Wonder Years on Alternate Song Titles and Land Pirates

We already told you all the things we learned going backstage on The Wonder Years' first U.S. headlining tour, but we were happy to get some more info out of the Pennsylvania band at Bamboozle 2012

In the video above, the group discuss their favorite title on their 2007 debut album Get Stoked On It! (It involves college mascots and marauders) and frontman Dan Campbell shares an alternate song title for their latest album Suburbia I've Given You All and Now I'm Nothing.

"There was a track that i wanted to call 'Goodwill Bikes,'" said Campbell. "Which i thought was a really cool track name, but it was part of a three song movement throughout the record, so it needed to fit title-wise into that movement."

Check out the full video above, where the band also reveal the connection between Suburbia and beat poet Allen Ginsberg's "America."
