My Hero Zero A Staple of THON

My Hero Zero played an hour long set of a wide variety of music for THON Saturday morning, which had everyone in the BJC singing and dancing together.

The band opened with a cover of Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were in Trouble,” and followed up with a mashup of “Starships” and “I’m Glad You Came.” Lead singer Jason O picked up a guitar to play a crowd-favorite “We Are Young.”

The band got the quickly filling up BJC jumping (or maybe Irish step dancing?) with “Shipping Up to Boston.”

After a short break, My Hero Zero took THON back a few decades for “Play That Funky Music” and “Billie Jean.”

Crowd-pleasers like “Shout,” “Hey Jude,” and “Livin’ on a Prayer” got all of the stands jamming out, while “500 miles” made everyone think they were at a football game Beaver Stadium again.

A second mashup of “Cupid Shuffle,” “Teach Me How to Dougie,” and “Soldier Boy” took everyone back to the ridiculous high school dances that we all sadly know.

My Hero Zero played throwback songs that every college kid knows like classic Blink-182’s “All the Small Things” and Good Charlotte’s “Don’t Wanna Be You.”

My Hero Zero closed their set with a mashup of “Domino” and “Firework” that had everyone in the BJC jacked up for the rest of the day.
