I think it's about frickin' time we had a thread on The Vandals.

Image
The Vandals are an American punk rock band formed in 1980 in Huntington Beach, California and currently recording for Kung Fu Records. They have released ten full-length studio albums and two live albums and have toured the world extensively, including performances on the Vans Warped Tour. They are well-known for their use of humor, preferring to use their music as a vehicle for entertainment and sarcasm rather than as a platform for more "serious" issues.

Dave Quackenbush - Vocals
Warren Fitzgerald - Guitar
Joe Escalante - Bass
Josh Freese - Drums


They are really funny. And not well known at all, unfortunately. Not on GSB at least.

Website.
MySpace. - I definately recommend listening to 'Flowers Are Pretty'.
Google vid of 'Don't Stop Me Now'.

Similar artists (according to LastFM) include NOFX, Rancid, Bouncing Souls, Operation Ivy.

Even if you've never heard of them before, have a listen and tell me what you think, please Very Happy

The Vandals are fun. I haven't listened to them in FOREVER, but every once in a while I will (if it happens to come on, that is). I saw them at the 2004 Warped Tour, actually.
