About this album

…And Out Come the Wolves is an album by the American punk rock band Rancid, released in August 1995 (see 1995 in music).

Rancid’s popularity and catchy songs made them the subject of a major label bidding war (hence the title, …And Out Come the Wolves taken from a poem in Jim Carroll’s Basketball Diaries) that ended with the band sticking with their indie label, Epitaph Records. With a sound heavily influenced by ska, which called to mind Tim Armstrong and Matt Freeman’s past in Operation Ivy, Rancid became one of the few bands of the mid- to late-1990s boom in punk to retain much of its original fanbase.

In terms of record sales and certifications, …And Out Come the Wolves is a popular album in the United States. It produced three hit singles – “Roots Radicals”, “Time Bomb” and “Ruby Soho” – that earned Rancid its heaviest airplay on MTV and radio stations to date. All the singles charted on Modern Rock Tracks. …And Out Come the Wolves has continued to sell consistently well in the fourteen years since its release, and on January 22, 1996 was certified gold by the RIAA. It was also certified platinum on September 23, 2004.

In the mid-1990s, …And Out Come the Wolves—along with Green Day’s Dookie and The Offspring’s Smash—helped revive mainstream popular interest in punk rock, and signaled the initial rise of mainstream punk and proved to be a massive success for the band.

Background
Rancid formed in Albany, California in 1991. They signed to Epitaph Records (founded by Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz) in 1992 and released their first album, which is self-titled, a year later to rave reviews.
