Watch Dashboard Confessional's Acoustic Rolling Stone Session

December 21, 2009 12:00 AM ET

Last month, Dashboard Confessional unleashed their sixth album of the decade, Alter the Ending. As Rolling Stone reported, the release came as a standard disc and a special edition bundled with acoustic versions of the album's dozen songs. When Chris Carrabba and John Lefler stopped by the RS offices recently, we made them recreate the acoustic experience by stripping down "Get Me Right" and "Belle of the Boulevard." Watch "Get Me Right" up top and "Belle" after the jump.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
