Distinguished by their hyperkinetic stage shows, juvenile humour, ironic covers of new wave pop songs, and metallic shards of ska, the group cultivated an underground following that broke into the mainstream when their single Sell Out became a modern rock radio and MTV favourite. British ska punk groups Lightyear and [Spunge] served as the openers for this show and were worthy of headlining their own shows and served as a great warm up on a rare evening that long john’s were not necessary for the soaring temperature inside the sweat-sodden venue.

Like most of their peers, the band was distinguished by their hyperkinetic stage shows, juvenile humor, ironic covers of new wave pop songs, and metallic shards of ska. Still fronted by original lead singer and song writer Aaron Barrett, they continue releasing albums and touring relentlessly, playing more and more countries and bigger venues all over the world. By summer, the song had become a moderate modern rock hit, and the album had charted in the Top The album was not as commercially successful but is still regarded by many fans as the bands finest work.

And it all sounds really good! This album is mostly love songs, but bitter, angry, hateful love songs. These songs could be sung by a 15 year old about his first love-gone-wrong, or by a 55 year old about a bitter divorce after 30 years. This album includes 4 classic Christmas songs and 2 RBF originals. Reel Big Fish continues to tour non-stop, playing over shows a year to thousands of loyal fans all over the world, gaining more and more underground popularity as the Ska scene continues to flourish.
