Seriously, This Matt Meola Waco Song And Dance Is The Best Thing We Saw/Heard Today

With the original score of the decade, Matt just did country music + surfing in a way everyone can enjoy.

Completely unprompted, Matt Meola just sent us the best Stab High hype video to date. 

Naturally it includes Matt surfing the Waco pool with great ferocity and skill. but the main feature is a parody cover of Billy Ray Cyrus x Lil Nas X’s #1 country-rap single, “Old Town Road”. 

For our deaf readers, it goes:

Gonna take my surfboard to Waco
Gonna ride til I cant no more
Gonna take my surfboard to Waco 
Gonna ride til I can’t no more
Got my surfboard in the bag
Leashes are attached
Fins are painted black
Got the grip pad black to match
Riding on my surfboard
You could ride a Wavestorm
I been at BSR 
Sippin’ on a Rockstar
Can’t nobody tell me nothing
Y’can’t tell me nothin’
Can’t nobody tell me nothing
Y’can’t tell me nothin’
Ridin’ on my thruster
Barbecue got Buster
Cheater-fives and butt-stalls
Claim it with a buck call
My life is a movie
Wavepool filled with boobies
Whiskey in my belly
I’m surfing like Kelly
Can’t nobody tell me nothing
Y’can’t tell me nothin’
Can’t nobody tell me nothing
Y’can’t tell me nothin’
Gonna take my surfboard to Waco
Gonna ride til I cant no more
Gonna take my surfboard to Waco 
Gonna ride til I can’t no more
Hat-down, wiggle town, feeling like a surf star
Spend a lot of money on my brand new surfboard
Baby’s got have its [unclear] and salty surf shorts
Doing rodeo flips on my Maserati surfboard
Got no stress, I get tubed for that
Man I’d rather bust airs than do cutbacks
I gotta get back to that old wavepool
I’ve gotta ride til I can’t no more.

In the context of surfer-produced cover music, this is shockingly good, no? And as far as country music and surfing go, surely no one’s done it better.

We should note that Matt’s sister, Lily Meola, is a highly skilled singer/songwriter in her own right. Matt’s rhythm, vocals, and production skills didn’t come from nowhere.

We’ll leave this here:
