I'm not sure if it's possible, but if you've never heard of Operation Ivy, check them out. They have one album, titled Energy. It's really tough for me to pick one track, but Unity is probably the best one overall.

Quick side note: This band's lead singer was very politically conscious/active, and after his brief stint in the band went on to become a monk somewhere in the middle of Asia. The other vocalist started his own band, Common Rider (another very good band, much poppier than Op Ivy). Fun!

Just listened to an oldie, but goodie and I recommend it to those with a love of ska/punk. Today's choice is Less Than Jake's album Hello Rockview. My personal favorite is most likely track 3, titled "All My Friends are Metalheads." I fully promote the listening of the entire album, though, as it is all good works. :D

Pay to the order of: Mr. Semicolons

Find enclosed: I am definitely a ska/punk guy, and that is by far one of my favorite Less than Jake albums. My number one is still Losing Streak, but mostly because of 9th At Pine. And Rock n' Roll Pizzeria.

I completely forgot about that guy! He rocks!

Also, I discovered some fun Reel Big Fish trivia: Apparently, Aaron Barrett, the band's singer, formed another band called Forces of Evil in 2001 'coz he thought Fish was going to bomb after the release of Cheer up!. Here's a link to the Wiki:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Forces_of_Evil

It's an interesting story, and the band itself is pretty good. It's basically RBF under a different name.

Hmmm...I watched a YouTube video of The Tiger Lillies tonight. I think it's just a little too circus-y, even for me. Perhaps it's the guy's voice...too annoying.

Right now I am listening to Robert Pollard, song title: Don't trust anybody
Ope, now it is Juan Prophet Organization, song title: Scraps and Crumbs

Are those recommendations?

Again... my preference for this thread... recommend a specific song and tell me why it's awesome. I want to be sold on the song before I even listen to it.
