Album Of The Day: Reel Big Fish – Fame, Fortune And Fornication
Everybody loves Reel Big Fish, It’s hard not too like them when they wrote seminal classics like ‘Beer’ ‘Ban The Tube Top’ and ‘She Has A Girlfriend Now’, so when they do an album covering the other serious and classic genre of hair metal you know it will be AMAZING!
Of course its not just a hair metal cover album it also has covers of Slade, John Mellencamp, Van Morrison and The Eagles amongst others. The whole album is distinctly Reel Big Fish, with its awesome Ska Punk party feel but now you will just happen to know most of the lyrics as well.
Best song is probably the Toots and the Maytal’s cover of ‘Monkey Man’
The full album can be found here on Spotify
