In a short interview with Rock Sound, Patent Pending frontman Joe Ragosta talks the band's early years and influences. They were a Green Day and Blink-182 cover band, except they couldn't really play the songs. Naturally, Billie Joe was one of his teenage musical heroes. Their song Classic You even references Green Day.

Of their first meeting at the Bowery Electric in New York, he says:

""One time, Billie Joe, uh, accidentally peed on my foot. There's way more to that story. But it happened. In real life. Paul Rudd was there. I know that sounds made up! It's not. I swear to God! No one believes me! It was the American Idiot cast party.""
