Let’s Do It For Johnny! — Bowling for Soup

By Fraser Tingle

Never heard of Bowling For Soup? You will–just hang in there. With two independent albums under their belt, Let’s Do It For Johnny!! marks their debut on a major label (Jive/Silvertone). The band can best be described as the pop/punk love child of Green Day and Cheap Trick. This album is a grab bag of new material, with remixes and re-recordings of previous songs thrown in for good measure–and it’s very good. Best enjoyed loud, Let’s Do It For Johnny!! is fast and fun; the Texan foursome employ more catchy harmonies than the Beach Boys.
