Justin Furstenfeld of Blue October Talks About Bullying

We caught up with the frontman of Blue October, Justin Furstenfeld in Baltimore at Ramshead Live! Blue October has songs that have heartfelt meanings that anyone can relate to in their lives. Well known for his lyrically content that covers such personal subjects as self loathing, suicidal fantasies,drug abuse, being bi-polar, depression and more , we knew that we wanted to get Justin on board here. The fact that Blue October had the song “Jump Rope” on the children’s All About Bullies… Big and Small that won a Grammy this past year didn’t hurt either.

So check out Justin’s message. He also recorded a second short message that we will get loaded up in the next couple of days. And as always, it was a pleasure talking with Justin!


  1. [...] Justin talked to Musicians Opposed to Bullying while he was in Baltimore. He talked about being bullied, rising above bullying, Facebook, All about Bullies… Big and Small and more. [...]

  2. Thank you to Blue October …for being such a big part of our project!!
    Thank you Justin and the band!!

  3. Justin, your are the real deal! Thank-you for being a wonderful part of our GRAMMY winning roster family on All About Bullies… Big And Small. You’re a talented and decent human being.

    God Bless,
    Steve Pullara

  4. Justin, it’s a privilege to be part of the same album, “All About Bullies…Big And Small,” so thank you for contributing to the awareness, prevention and, one day, the END of bullying.
