Known for their cheeky take on pop-punk and melodic alt-pop, Texas four-piece Bowling for Soup found mainstream success in the early 2000s with their breakout fourth album, Drunk Enough to Dance, which earned a Grammy nomination for its hooky pop culture-referencing single "Girl All the Bad Guys Want." Over the ensuing decade, the band continued to nurture a hardcore fan base, breaking the Billboard Top 40 with 2004's A Hangover You Don't Deserve and finding increased success in the U.K., where they became a touring mainstay. During the course of their career, Bowling for Soup have managed a fairly diverse and prolific output within their tuneful pop-punk confines, releasing three live albums (all recorded in the U.K.), two Christmas albums, a collection of movie and television themes, and an acoustic release -- they even wrote the theme song to the Disney cartoon 'Phineas and Ferb.' After a decade with RCA's Jive Records, they launched their own Que-So imprint and turned to their fans to help fund albums like 2014's Lunch. Drunk. Love. and 2016's Drunk Dynasty.
