Hear Punk Rock Versions of Pokémon, Power Rangers and Other 90s Cartoon Classics

If you’ve ever wanted a burst of 90s nostalgia with a punk rock twist, you’re in luck! UK cover masters Punk Rock Factory recently released their latest album Masters of the Worstest”. It’s a 22 track trip down memory lane with iconic theme songs like Pokémon, Power Rangers, and Scooby-Doo.

Formed in late 2014 in South Wales, Punk Rock Factory (Peej- vocals, guitar, Benj- bass, vocals, Ryan- guitar and Kob- drums, vocals), combine everything you love about 1990s/2000s punk rock, and reimagine classic and hit songs like you’ve never heard them before. From Meat Loaf to Disney, nothing is off-limits to them.

The band rehearse, write, record, mix, master and film everything themselves in one dedicated space that they affectionately call ‘The Sausage Factory’ and have no problem bringing friends along either. To date, Punk Rock Factory has had singers from bands such as Protest the Hero, Bowling for Soup, Mest, Rufio, Belvedere, Ten Foot Pole and more, provide guest vocals on tracks. Firmly cementing themselves as a punk rock household name.

On the new album, Punk Rock Factory takes on 21 classic TV theme songs including, Arthur, Power Rangers, Saved By The Bell, The Flintstones, Goof Troop, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Pokémon and many more. You can rock out to their rendition of Pokémon here:

All these TV themes hold a special place in our hearts as we grew up watching them all, and to get the chance to give them the PRF treatment is something really special for us. So grab your cereal, sit down in front of the TV and lets get strapped in…

Of the new album, the band adds, “After the success of the last Disney album, we wanted to work on songs that really meant something to us. We grew up watching all these shows, so this was a big honour and a huge nostalgia trip for us.

Just like ‘A Whole New Wurst’, we have stayed as faithful as we possibly could with all these songs. We wanted to do them as you remember them. This means we didn’t extend them, or change them, unless it really worked in the song’s favour.

We had so many suggestions and requests, and honestly, we looked at them all, but we’re only human, and we couldn’t fit them all in!

We hope you love each and every one of these tracks as much as we loved making them.

There are tons to choose from, and this time you can really get in the nostalgic spirit with a limited edition cassette of the album and a classic poster!”
