Sleeping With Sirens' front man Kellin Quinn had quite a reputation in high school! Check out how he survived high school cliques, how he got suspended and how he stated his own lucrative business.
What were your extracurricular activities?
I was pretty active in choir and drama, It's funny because bros at school thought being in Choir or Drama was for losers, the truth is, the hottest girls were in those classes! So while the football dudes were showering together I was practicing my "lines" with their girlfriends among other things.. Sorry Bret Harris ;)
What was your high school's mascot?
The Phoenix Pirates
Did you ever write down a REALLY ridiculous answer on a test?
Never wrote down weird answers on tests but, in science class our teacher let us listen to CDs while taking exams, So 3 other students and myself started a pretty badass business. We would find out the answers to the exam, then record ourselves asking and answering the questions, burn it onto a blank disk, and sell them for 30 bucks to other students, not a bad way to make a living.
If you could have gone to any fictional high school, which one would it have been?
Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry duh!
Favorite place to hang or hide at your school?
The Common room was the place to hang out for most kids, my art class had a really comfy couch in the back room, my teacher was pretty cool, so I spent allot of down time napping during down time.
What did you usually eat for lunch?
Taco bell, or little caesars. Put down 2 bucks between five friends and you've got a good amount of pizza for really cheap.
Were you ever bullied? If so, how did you deal with it?
I was a really small, skinny kid in high school lol not much has changed, but I was never bullied. I was what they call a floater, which means I was cool with every click, I'm really good at reading people, so I had no problem finding little things in common with every type of student.
What song, band or album do you most identify with your high school experience?
I LOVED Linkin Park, Hybrid Theory was my jam! I thought that shit was SO heavy haha, you know what though, I've gotta say I still love that band, and jam Meteora still from time to time
What was the most trouble you ever got in, and what was it for?
I got suspended from school for a week for shooting potatoes out of a potato gun on the football field.
Which high school from a music video would you want to go to?
I don't really know? It would be pretty cool to go back to my high school and shoot one with my band though, might do that now, thanks for the idea!
Make sure to keep up with the boys and check out their latest album, 'Let's Cheers to This' available on iTunes!
