After the departure of lead singer Chris Batstone, Suburban Legends re-released their debut album, Suburban Legends, without the vocal track featuring Chris. This karaoke version of the EP Suburban Legends is essentially the same album from the Orange County based third wave ska band. It was released in 2002, but was only available for download on their MP3.com site, which is no longer available. It has since been released as a free download on their official forums.
Although Chris' voice has been removed from every track from the CD, Brian Klemm's voice was not removed at all from the "Desperate" track, creating a sort of "Sing a Duet with Brian" karaoke song. However, Brian's vocal track was re-recorded for the Tim Remix version of Desperate.
