I like the song "Build Me Up Buttercup". I bought their Cheer Up! CD because a friend recommended it to me. I don't know, they're okay. They have that feel good sound to them. I saw them in concert like two summer ago, they were definately worth the cash to go.

Hey everybody!!
I just wanted to send a thank you out to everybody for all their support in our fight against Jive records and the new “Greatest Hit…and more” album! We’ve been getting lots of messages and comments from people telling us how they are out there stopping people from buying the cd and some are even going into record stores and hiding it in the classical or country sections or other places where people wont be duped into buying that piece of doggy doo-doo! Haha Go Fish Army!
Thanks so much you guys! We just wanted to warn people about how the bad re-mastering job makes the album sound like crap and how jive put out this “Greatest Hit” album just a few months after we put out our Live album just to confuse people and steal some of our record sales and kinda let everybody know what the deal was there but we never expected everyone to go out of their way to support us so much and help us out like this! You guys are soooooooo awesome!! Thanks so much!! We love ya!

Also, we have been getting a lot of spam messages and comments from people who are fans and friends and bands we know. Watch out for those fake login screens, there are so many people out there trying to steal your info so be careful and change those passwords!


Finally, our show in Albuquerque, NM tonight has been moved to the Launch pad , and there are still tickets available so get yer asses to the show!!

Thanks again for supporting us!!

Apparently Jive is trying to screw them and the sales of their new album.

Monkey man was truly awful. And this is one of my favorite bands. But monkey man was shit.

Try "Good Thing" on "Sell Out"

Agreed^ but wasn't it for a cartoon movie of the wild thornberries anyway,maybe they didn't have much to work with?
sell out was great, so was the video, also their cover of A-ha's tak on me was fantastic, a sheer stroke of genious.

So, what you're saying is, Reel Big Fish aren't Ska because they're 3rdWave?

No, I would have said listen to Desmond Decker or Toots and the Maytals.

Half the bands I listed are third wave.

They aren't ska because they aren't ska.
