So I have 3 of their 5 CD's and I was wondering weather "...vs. the floating eye of death" and "Return of..." are any good. Also, who else is into them? Discuss the awesomness that is the aquabats.

i love the aquabats, both their old ska stuff and their new new wave/pop punk stuff. i know the lyrics to like all their songs, but any way, i think "return of" is better than "the floating eye" in my opinion, since it's their first and is a lot more ska than "the floating eye". both are good though, as are all their cds. "return of..." is my second favorite cd of theirs.

Rancid are the best punk band ever.

He doesn't sound like Opie from family guy at all.

On Topic: I love the Aquabats. I actually started out listening to the new wave stuff, and then went back and discovered the ska.

Of all ska music, the aquabats require a very very aquired taste. Either you love them or you hate them.

I am still upset that they drop the ska thing, but there new stuff is still really good.

My dream is to see them live.

i think they suck...but that is just me...wasn't blink's drummer in the band?

haha, yea that's true. when i first heard the aquabats, i heard "my skateboard" and i thought it was ok. then i heard "pizza day" and i thought it was awesome, but then i heard "i fell asleep on my arm" and i was like wtf? did they sell out?!? then i searched for a picture of them and i realized they weren't a band to take seriously.

Yeah I think "i fell asleep on my arm" is just to make fun of linkin park and korn type of music.

Charge is such a fun album even if it's not ska.


And of course their old albums rule too.

I like you because you also like super heroes AND have a They Might Be Giants reference in your user name



But I like the Aquabats based purely on their live show. But in the end, that should pretty much be all that matters.

they're good... super rad, pizza day, and martian girl...

their new stuff's alright, but i prefer the intense horn parts that are actually harder than they seem to play... i wonder why they don't have a few horns for live shows and rely on other bands...

the best part is i can play em at work and not get into trouble for lyrics
when they come for me, i'll be sitting at my desk, with a gun in my hand, wearin a bullet-proof vest, singin: "my my my how the time does fly, when you know you're gonna die by the end of the night"

I saw them live with Rancid. I was very very confused.

I bough their new album and its not good, so I dont really like them

I haven't looked in on any of their other stuff though
#25
Why you gotta open up the hateorade on the Aqabats man? I'm not liking your negative vibe.

Does anybody have the tabs for the guitars in their song "Ska Boss"?
Z?

Saw them live here in San Diego. they kicked ass. They chucked some 3 or 4 year old kid name sam cook into the crowd and crowd surfed him to his parents, it was so damn awesome. It was a really bitchin show and it was kinda funny too. Really good live. Somehow made all of their recorded stuff sound so much better to me all of a sudden, especially pool party
#30
gah i love the aquabats!
my favorite song is super rad!
the bassline is so cool and the horns on it are great!
i also think magic chicken is really good!
#31
