Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus and Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz once created a kids television show called Bronze Blue.
Hoppus spoke with KROQ, explaining that the show was set to star himself and Wentz alongside Ashlee Simpson, and possibly Pharrell Williams. The foursome would play an underwater pop-punk band that toured beaches with their eco-friendly tracks, and even battled a villainous sushi chef.

Hoppus was going to play a guitar-playing octopus names Tako and Wentz was set to play a bass-playing sea bass named Shrimpy. Additionally, fellow Fall Out Boy bandmate Patrick Stump and members of All Time Low had been approached to appear in the series.
They even pitched the show to both Nickelodeon and Disney Channel in 2010, but neither of the networks picked it up.
Variety has discovered some of the songs that were supposed to be included in the show, and they’ve even posted some of the songs, which you can listen to below.
