Reel Big Fish "Candy Coated Fury"

I have never had any particular desire to have a song as a ringtone until now. "Everyone Else Is An Asshole" the lead track off the new Reel Big Fish album CANDY COATED FURY (out this Tuesday 7/31) has now been adopted as my favorite tongue-in-cheek theme song. This album is filled with amazing gems of nastiness wrapped in delightfully "candy coated" ska charm. For twenty years Reel Big Fish have been incredibly fun and with CANDY COATED FURY they prove that not only have they not lost a step, but may have produced one of the best albums of their career. "I Know You Too Well To Like You Anymore" may be one of the best breakup songs ever recorded, perfectly capturing the frustration of realizing that someone you once adored could not possibly drive you any crazier. As Reel Big Fish head off to rock the hell out of Russia and the UK next month, we doff our caps to the once and future kings of ska.
