Biography

Reel Big Fish was one of the legions of Southern California ska-punk bands to edge into the mainstream following the mid-’90s success of No Doubt and Sublime. 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. The group cultivated an underground following that broke into ... Read more in Amazon's Reel Big Fish Store

Customer Reviews

This is one of the best albums I have ever heard.

If you even remotely like ska, buy this CD and if you are a hard core ska fan, you better have it in your collection!

I am a huge rbf fan, and always will be. i was browsing to buy the duran duran tribute album, (with rbf) and saw i could do a review. Any-thing for these guys! the cd is so awsome and such a huge growth from their first one, just to show that they will continue to frow and rock forever. not only is their sarcasim in pretty much every song just the funniest, they are just really nice guys, and everyone should buy this. i dont care who you are! they're awsome!

Reel Big FIsh was my first SKa band that I was obsessed with and THis CD lives up to my expectations. Their sound is changed so much it's hard to compare to their last CD but the guitar is great and the singing is even better. A ska must for any real ska fans and ska newcomers as well. By the way, they didn't sell out, their music matured and got better.

This is a good disc, and I can see why they're popular, but it's not what I think of when I think of ska. It's not so much ska-punk, as it is ska-pop. It has alot more in common with "No Doubt" and "Smash Mouth", than it does with the older hardcore ska bands. At best it reminds me of "The Mighty Mighty Bosstones" or "Fishbone". But I do want to say it's good, and catchy, just a bit happier than what I was hoping for. Maybe I'm getting old.

This cd is a must have for any ska fan, and anyone who truly appreciates good music. This was my first RBF cd, and it's what got me into ska music. I LOVE THIS CD!!!!! A couple listens to it and I was hooked! It was the first time I heard Reel Big Fish, and right away they became one of my favorite bands. 2nd favorite, to be exact (Offspring, of course, would be my number 1). I would recommend this cdto anyone and everyone. I saw Reel Big Fish live today and they were awesome! Although their set was way too short...it only lasted about 40 minutes. They were opening for Blondie, who I think SUCK (just my opinion). I don't see how Blondie can headline over Reel Big Fish. It just doesn't make sense. Anyway.....back to my review. If youdon't have this cd, go out and buy it right now! RBF's music puts you in a great mood, and the high energyit has really pumps you up to go outand do anything! Bottom line: great,great, great cd, very much worth theinvestment. Now what are you waitingfor? Go out and buy it!

This is a must have for any ska fan. It was my first Reel Big Fish cd and also my first ska cd and as soon as I heard it I was hooked on it. I became obsessed with RBF. It has great guitars and horns and it's a really fast and upbeat kinda ska cd. After hearing this I had to get their previous cd, Turn the Radio Off, and I have to say they have definitely changed their sound, but for the better. Turn the Radio Off is more ska, while Why Do They Rock So Hard lives up to its name, it rocks harder, but still it's horn section is so great. Just get it, you won't be disappointed.

this is one of the best cds i've bought in a long time. i have been a fan of RBF for a while now and i feel this could be thier best album to date. they are headed in a new direction but thats awsome. alot of people are knocking them for that but if they put out 12 more albums that sounded like "Turn The Radio Off" they'd be criticizing them too. well needless to say its a great cd, the songs are catchy and the lyrics are funny in that RBF sort of way. this cd answers the question... "Why Do They Rock so Hard?"

Perosnally, I wasnt too sure about Reel Big Fish's new CD, Why do they rock so hard? First of all, with the explixt lyrics symbol, and experience from the last album, I new there would be use of unedded profanity. However, I was surprised to find out the profanity was mediocre and used barely ever. The songs are great like She's Famous Now, The Kids Don't Like It,Brand New Song, Somebody Hates Me, they are all great. This Cd is better than the 1st one and is exellent.
