Reel Big Fish is a third wave ska band, best known for the 1997 hit "Sell Out." Reel Big Fish gained mainstream recognition in the mid-to-late 1990s, following the success of fellow ska/ punk bands No Doubt and Sublime. Sometimes thought of as a one-hit wonder, Reel Big Fish's album "Turn the Radio Off," which featured "Sell Out," has vastly outsold their subsequent releases. However, the band is also known for its songs "Beer," "She Has a Girlfriend Now," "Where Have You Been?," and their numerous cover songs, which include a-Ha's "Take On Me," Lita Ford's "Kiss Me Deadly", Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York," Tracy Chapman's "Talkin' Bout a Revolution", The Cure's "Boys Don't Cry", and Social Distortion's "Story of My Life". Reel Big Fish is also known for doing a portion of their live shows where they play one of their songs, usually "S.R." in many various styles. Their music is often comedic, with names like "She has a Girlfriend Now" and "Your Guts (I Hate Them)".
Reel Big Fish first signed to Mojo Records in 1996, which was then owned by Universal Records. Mojo was later sold to Jive Records. After several years of dissatisfaction, in 2006, Jive Records dropped Reel Big Fish from its roster, much to the band's delight. As an independent band, Reel Big Fish plans to pursue more projects, and has released its own live CD/ DVD set, and plans a split CD with their tour-mates Zolof the Rock & Roll Destroyer.
