Reel Big Fish

~ Group


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. Reel Big Fish is now more well known, but not quite mainstream in the USA and Europe. Although thought by many to be an actual "ska" band, Reel Big Fish is more of a rock band with ska elements, playing off of the genre from when it was popular in the mid 90s, commonly referred to as third wave.

Reel Big Fish is an American ska punk band from Huntington Beach, California, best known for the 1997 hit "Sell Out". The band gained mainstream recognition in the mid-to-late 1990s, during the third wave of ska with the release of the gold certified album Turn the Radio Off. Soon after, the band lost mainstream recognition but gained an underground cult following. As of 2006, the band is no longer signed to a major record label, and has since been independent. After many line-up changes throughout the years, front man Aaron Barrett remains the only founding member in the band.
