Part of a wave of tongue-in-cheek, skate-boarding, punk-pop bands who swarmed the airwaves in the late 1990s and early Noughties, Bowling For Soup adopted the stance of High School outsiders who refuse to grow old. Lifting their name from a Steve Martin comedy sketch, the band built a keen following around their native Texas with early albums Rock On Honourable Ones!! (1997) and Let's Do It For Johnny (2000), before receiving a Grammy nomination in 2003 for the single Girls All The Bad Guys Want - a Number 8 hit in the UK. Their biggest success came with fifth studio album the ska-tinged, cartoon punk of Hangover You Don't Deserve (2004), which reached gold status in the US and produced the college radio hits 1985 and Almost. The band covered their favourite television and film theme tunes on Bowling For Soup Goes To The Movies (2005) and returned in 2009 with their seventh studio album Sorry For Partyin'. Still rocking like a gang of frat-boy drop-outs, a huge local following and joyous live reputation keeps the party going.
