Reel Big Fish Tickets
Reel Big Fish TicketsIn the mid-1990s, Reel Big Fish was part of the movement that brought ska back to the mainstream of music. Reel Big Fish began as a high school band with a bunch of guys playing cover songs at local dives. After they recorded an original song in 1992 called "In The Good Old Days," the lead singer, Ben Guzman, left the band, and Aaron Barrett took over; this is when the band decided to perform ska music. Of the nine studio albums they have created, seven of Reel Big Fish's albums have made it to the Billboard Hot 200, and their 1997 song "Sell Out" reach No. 10 on the US Modern Rock chart and No. 69 on the US Radio Songs chart. Reel Big Fish appeared in the 1998 movie BASEketball as the band performing in the stands; they also were featured on the soundtrack for the movie with a cover of A-ha's "Take On Me."
Reel Big Fish: Old and JadedWhen it came time to begin writing and recording music for Reel Big Fish's fifth album, We're Not Happy 'til You're Not Happy, Aaron Barrett was in a huge rut, to the point where he was considering leaving the band. He was not having fun playing music, and he found that living in a mobile home with his bandmates was starting to grate on him. At the suggestion of his manager, Barrett began writing songs about how he hated being in a band, such as "One Hit Wonderful," "Don't Start a Band" and "Your Guts (I Hate 'Em)." He says that the album We're Not Happy 'til You're Not Happy is about being old and jaded about being in a band.
