Fastball vs Kells

The other day with my friend, the topic of Machine Gun Kelly's song with Camila Cabello came up, "Bad Things." We started singing the chorus...and she's like, "what's the original song of this?" And I'm like what?

After some research we found it.

I had no idea "Out Of My Head" by Fastball was a thing. But apparently Machine Gun Kelly did!

Listen to the "original" where the inspiration was clearly taken.

Was I out of my head?
Was I out of my mind?
How could I have ever been so blind?
I was waiting for an indication
It was hard to find

Don't matter what I say, only what I do
I never mean to do bad things to you
So quiet that I finally woke up
If you're sad then it's time you spoke up too

It's so funny to me. I thought it was MGK's original chorus. Obviously he changed it up a bit, and definitely changed up the mood/theme...but still.

Listen to MGK's below. It was his first massive radio hit. It was cool to see him "blow up" like that. He deserves it. His music is great.
