LAUREN: Your song ‘Spend A Bag’ is receiving a positive listener response on radio. What was your initial reaction when you first heard your song playing on radio?
THE GORE BOYZ (TGB): We all just started yelling and screaming in the car then we all started singing our parts. It was pure pandemonium all the way home and we started calling our grandparents and our friends from school telling them to listen and our phones were blowing up because everybody started calling us.
LAUREN: What was the inspiration behind your radio single?
THE GORE BOYZ (TGB): The song talks about how you have to spend a bag on a girl to impress her.

TGB performs music that allows people to have fun, which is what they want their music to be about, while putting out clean, quality music that will stand the test of time.
