I got caught up in the Bosstones for a little bit in the mid to late 90's...there was actually a huge ska following here in Utah in the 90's...I still have the album Lets Face It on my iTunes.

I still listen to that album from time to time...never heard much of their earlier stuff

i had their one hit album, and i can remember a kid in one of my classes loved them and threw out all their albums after they went "mainstream and sold out"... that's about all i can add to this conversation.

they were mighty mighty, though... apparently.

so if i were to project some kind of statistical analysis based on the 12 or so of you that have posted, my buddy is right.


i think "someday i suppose" was on the clueless soundtrack, not "where did you go."

yes... you would be right.

the only time i hear the mighty mighty bosstones these days is when i listen to the mp3eddie vedder and mike mccready's "yellow ledbedder" from the tibetan freedom concert, which has the voice of their lead singer going "we aaaaare the mighty mighty bosstones" at the end of the track, apparently because in the late 90's people were very poor at editing tracks.

i'm bumping this old-ass thread because pandora brought up "the impression that i get." and while i usually skip it when i get on a bosstones kick out of the sheer number of times i've heard it (and because i'm an elitist jerk who always counts lesser-known songs as better than the ones everyone's heard), i'm usually pleasantly surprised at how much i love the horn riff when it starts playing.

now i guess i'm gonna have to find me and mofo's old bouncing souls thread because i'm revisiting the awesomeness that is "kids and heroes." i've heard that song a lot more recently than the bosstones' tune, and i'm sure more than a couple drivers on the highway laughed at me singing along to something in my car (which was that song, because it's great like that). friggin love that song, though.

I love Adam Carolla and Dr. Drew and they love the Bosstones so I kinda love the Bosstones too.


GET IT ON. Gotta get it on.
