Reel Big Fish

Reel Big Fish is a southern California ska-punk band who broke into the mainstream in the mid to late 1990s after the success of No Doubt and Sublime. Their debut album, Everything Sucks[?], was an underground hit and led to a deal with Mojo Records[?], an indie label. Turn the Radio Off[?] established the band in the underground music scene, and they began touring throughout the US. After "Sell Out" began breaking into the mainstream, including onto MTV, the album charted. The ska revival was short-lived, however, and Why Do They Rock So Hard[?] (1998) did not make the group mainstream starts. In 2002 the group released Cheer Up[?] which fared much better on the rock charts, particularly because of the horn-less single "Where Have you Been".
