"New Friend Request" is the second single taken from the Gym Class Heroes album As Cruel as School Children. The single was released on 23 October in the UK and was the band's second consecutive single to be a non-chart qualifier as both physical formats contained a sticker, which is against UK chart rules regarding promotional pack-ins.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "New Friend Request" is a MySpace-themed video. It has people that are depicted as "friends" on MySpace, and Travis McCoy has to add friends on his MySpace page. He has trouble finding friends, because most of them have flaws and he is trying to find the perfect ones. At the end, Travis ends up finding friends and something better—a girlfriend.

A remix, produced by Hi-Tek, is featured on the soundtrack album Snakes on a Plane: The Album.

The song contains a sample of "We Love Together" by The Majestic Arrows.
