Nice! 'Bout time we got a little third-wave ska into Artistry!

I shall most likely be doing 'Sell Out' - just how, I do not know.

Hopefully we can get more than just us 5 on this round... Any other Reel Big Fish Fans out there?

third wave ska is third wave ska is third wave ska...eh. I don't hate it, it's just...I'm not much into the sound. Except for early No Doubt, it's all so cookie cutter to me.

Help me out here. Is there a 1st and 2nd wave ska ?

Although I have never heard of this band, I have heard the song "Take On(e) Me" somewhere.

I think I see some possibilities here.

Yeah, There is many subgenres that ska fits under, Reel Big Fish is a mix of Third Wave Ska, and Ska-Punk, the song that you've heard is "Take On Me", Dave oopsied up the title of that in the thread.
The song "Take On Me" is by a band called A-Ha, Reel Big Fish did a cover of it, and that's fine to do, because in the Bangles round, Dave did a remake of Simon and Garfunkles "Hazy Shade Of Winter", and covers apparently work for Artistry.

I personally see a "Reel Big Stove" in the near future, because this is one of my favorite bands of all time. (Cookie cutter or not).

Where's that helpful Ska list someone pulled in the Decathlon round? (Artistry is educational as well as challenging! :))

Third wave wha??? Who? Wow, I so never heard of these guys. I already have a parody for A-Ha's Take On Me, could I somehow maybe, oh I don't know, change some lines, a little nip and tuck, and submit it under this artist? Otherwise, I got nothing. I did sort of the same thing for the Disney round, using Bonnie Tyler's Holding Out For A Hero for the Shrek version. I know some of you may not like that, so I don't have to do this one.

Covers are acceptable. . .so yes, but it must be submitted under the Reel Big Fish, but sure you could do that, but it would need to be submitted under Reel Big Fish, and it's been awhile since I've listened to either, so if you're real lucky you may not have to change much

Cookie cutter bands can be even harder than bands that have each of their songs sound completely different.

I'm actually getting a bunch of ideas for this one...

Here are a few of my ideas (Feel free to use one of these Aggy)

1. "Wood Thing" to "Good Thing": Gepetto turns out to be a horny old man and uses Pinocchio's nose for... you know...
2. "My Evil Hand": to "Don't Start A Band": A good old fashioned tribute to the movie "The Evil Dead"
3. "Baggage Check" to "Average Man": A mockery of Airport Security
4. "Bug The Mall Cop" to "Ban The Tube Top": Your average Mall Rat theme song
5. "Clear Up" to "Cheer Up": The tale about what Harry Potter should be using the Invisiblity Cloak for

I do have "Valentine's Sucks", which I used for the Decathlon, but I'm working on an idea for "Don't Start A Band", and "Party Down"... I was working on "Death Polka Band" until I ran out of material... There's not a lot of things in Polka that you can make fun of that lasts for one of Reel Big Fish's longest songs... Anybody who can offer a kick-arse idea for that song I would most grateful

The only thing that came to mind for "Party Down" was something in tribute to famed "little person" Billy Barty. (Willow, Foul Play, Legend, various Sid & Marty Krofft TV productions)

But the OS was way too random to work with, so I gave up. Good luck!

My entry will be late by one day due to illness. . .I will leave it at that at the moment, but I know that statistically we kinda need the extra enry on this round, otherwise I would just sit out a round to catch my breath. . .

But Matthias would want to kill me if I sat out a round in Artistry, and since he'll be down here next week, I don't want to give him a motive.
