Biography

Talking with Bowling for Soup singer Jaret Reddick, you may not immediately get the sense that this affable, down-to-earth Texan fronts a Grammy- and Emmy-nominated pop/punk band with over a million album sales to their credit. “If you compare our first album to our 10th one, you could be like, ‘Let’s see… Well, their voices finally changed, and they got a lot better ...

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Any band formed by a former toyshop owner who cites his influences as REO Speedwagon, Van Halen, Ozzy Osbourne and Tammy Wynette, aren't going to be the most deep and meaningful bunch, but they have their moments. Like most people, Bowling For Soup have issues, they just don't mope about them, preferring instead to vent their frustrations through cathartic bouts of rocket fuelled surf punk on Let's Do It For Johnny. All the things that preoccupy the hearts and minds of skateboard kids around the world are succinctly dealt with using the minimum of tact and the maximum of hard rocking sincerity. In short, sharp, three-minute bursts to chugging beats and undeniably contagious tunes, they tackle always being a hot girl's best friend, never her lover ("Suckerpunch"), the mysteries of relationships ("Bitch"), fatal attractions ("Dance With You") and the need for a new girlfriend ("Valentino"). They're Blink 182 with a heart, and whatever their problems, Bowling For Soup, like the slacker generation they represent, are determined not to let the world or less than understanding girlfriends get them down. Amen to that. --Dan Gennoe

5.0 out of 5 stars Doing it for Johnny in style 20 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard this album I wasn't sure that the bouncing melodic tunes were my kind of music. However, Bowling For Soup really grow on you and the superb lyrics of songs like Bitch, Valentino and You and Me really stick in your head. All of the songs have an addictive beat with lyrics that most people can easily relate to. Bowling For Soup show similarities to bands such as Greenday or in places Blink 182. All of the songs bar one (that being Bryan Adams Summer of '69) are their own and come with a fresh and new feeling. This is a very much upbeat album with lyrics that will make even the hardest person smile. I highly recommend this album and it is well worthy of the five stars I give it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great album! 30 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A mixture of '60s influence, and punk rock, and you've got a great album. I especially love Valentino and Suckerpunch. A definite buy for all those who like punk rock, even if its not quite that.

4.0 out of 5 stars a smashing pop-punk album 14 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A catchy pop punk album kinda Blink 182 meets Greenday sound. The album contains some fantastic tracks "Andrew", "Belgium", "Suckerpunch" and of course their cover of "Summer of '69", in fact the whole album rocks big time. An all round good cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most catchy and darn right brilliant CD ever. Probably.
The album cover may not be as good as Blink 182s 'Enema Of The State' but that doesn't mean to say the content isn't as good. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars New age punk.
Maybe there just a new band but the music is just outstanding. I believe these are the new kings of punk all they need is time and abit of recognition. Excellent debut album.
