Back in August, Machine Gun Kelly announced his second joint album with Travis Barker by getting its title, “Born With Horns,” tattooed on his forearm. He even roped Barker into getting matching ink.
Less than six months later, however, he’s decided to change the name of his new LP to “Mainstream Sellout” — and on Monday, he had to break the news to the Blink-182 drummer that their pain was all for naught.
MGK, 31, shared a TikTok video capturing 46-year-old Barker’s reaction, simply captioned, “my bad @travisbarker.”
“We’re friends no matter what, right?” Kelly asked Barker in the clip.
“Of course,” replied Barker with a laugh, before asking for the album’s new name.

“Mainstream Sellout” will be MGK’s sixth studio album, following 2020’s “Tickets to My Downfall,” which was also produced by Barker.
The close friends and collaborators share a love of body art, and both have tattoos dedicated to their respective fiancées, Megan Fox and Kourtney Kardashian.
Here’s hoping “Born With Horns” is a single, at least.
