    I miss the days of playing in a ska punk band, listening to amazing bands such as the hippos, loving living life, summers and skateboarding... I had an amazing youth. Thank you Hippos

    holy fuck, how did I not know! The only song I'd ever listen to was asleep at the wheel, but fuck me running this is stupendous

    I wish more people knew of their self titled album. A true hidden gem.

    The Hippos self titled final album will be one of those hidden gems that future bands will claim as their inspiration. We will be among the lucky ones who listened to it before it was popular.

    "Don't Worry" is one of the most amazingly hypocritical songs ever. "You feel betrayed, you feel left out, all your favourite bands have all sold out." And then they sold out utterly.

    jesus.. this was the first band I saw on my own, sans parents, wayyyy back in 1998, at the ripe old age of 13. Me and my friend took 3 buses from Torrance to Anaheim, and we hung out with them afterwords and it was so adorable and her mommy picked us up in the parking lot and we were SO embarrassed because we totally lied and said we were in highschool. oooops.
