The Ataris have been kicking punk ass for years now but as bands such as Sum 41 and New Found Glory become more internationally well known, as do The Ataris. I've had this CD spinning on my player now for since summer 2000 and it's unbelievably hard to pin point one song I dislike.
My favourite Ataris song, not just from the 'Blue Skies...' album, but overall, 'San Dimas High School Football Rules' is the most astonishing on the album, and no matter how many times you listen to it, you will never be tierd of hearing it because it is a piece of punk genius! '1*15*96* is a lot more commercial than many of The Ataris songs, but is defenitly a four-star tune. Unlike punk bands such as Blink 182, The Ataris are far more mature, experimenting with deeper lyrics... All in all, what I generally should have said from the beginning is...this album is brilliant. You don't even have to be a hardcore punk fan to agree, but if this isn't included in your CD collection then you don't know what you are missing!
