From Ashes To New have released a hilarious parody of Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” calling it “Wake Me Up When 2020 Ends,” making the perfect anthem for the current times when the novel coronavirus pandemic has taken over the world.
“2019 has come and passed / the whole world went to shit so fast / wake me up when 2020 ends / ruined all my summer plans cause some guy in China ate a bat / wake me up when 2020 ends / Panic is setting in / I head out to Walmart, hand sanitizer and TP fills my cart / thought this year would be a blast but now i’m jobless, stressed and fat / Wake me up when 2020 ends,” sings Danny Case.
The song mentions a bunch of struggles everyone is facing during this difficult time in quarantine from trying to reach unemployment to practicing social distancing and not seeing their friends for long periods of times. In the music video that accompanied the parody, you can see the band practicing social distancing from their homes doing everyday activities like eating, doing laundry and more.
“Social distancing from friends / Wearing masks and washing hands / Wake me up when 2020 ends / There’s quarantine and travel bans / Now murder Hornets from japan / Wake me up when 2020 ends / I binge some Netflix shows again / Tiger King’s a start That bitch carol baskin / Should be put behind bars Now most my days are spent / Trying to reach unemployment / Wake me up when 2020 ends” Case continues to sing in the hilariously fitting new Parody.
The band recently released their new single “Panic” early in late April, donating all proceeds from the song to Crew Nation, an organization by Live Nation to help fund those in the music industry who are currently unemployed. From Ashes To New also has released several impressive covers during quarantine including Bullet For My Valentine’s “Tears Don’t Fall,” Linkin Park’s “Faint,” Evanescence’s “Bring Me To Life,” and Papa Roach’s “Gravity” during their ‘Quarantine Covers’ series.
