    I added the Mighty Mighty Bosstones to my IPod and now I can't stop listening to them. Very infectious grooves. :hyper:
    And it's been three weeks. Anyone else into the MMB's

    Yea I like "Where did ya go". I saw em live at rockfest in Atlanata in 98. A fun band.
  3. I concur: "Where Did You Go?" is one of the best sing-alongs of all time. The bass tone was so DEEP on their recordings.

    i dont like there bass player at all i read an article where he was bashing the instrument HE PLAYS!!! that he feeds his family with saying how boaring and easy it is to play. perhaps he should expand his horizions a little and make it a challenge but i kinda like the band though
  5. Listen to a song by the MM Bosstones called "What's at stake", is cover of a Slapshot song (of the same name obv.), you might want to get the slapshot version, just to compare them, its funny :)

    "Pay Attention" is my favorite release from them. It's a rockin' CD from top to bottom. The songs just get inside of you...
  8. theyre the big party time nu-ska band its ok to like!
    plus they wear tartan suits... nuff sed :bassist:

    theyre great, they carry on the legacy of bands like the specials and bad manners (if you dont know about them check em out, try :
    Trojan records "ska - hits and near misses"
    its got all the original ska / two tone bands doing their best songs live.

    oh, and that comment about the bass was just trying to be punkxkx innit
