The Billboard
The Bouncing Souls are a punk rock band, formed in 1987. They are originally from New Brunswick, New Jersey. By time of their acknowledgement by the national punk scene, they had reignited a "pogo" element to New Jersey punk rock by playing fast light-hearded songs, a model followed by various other local bands (e.g. Blanks 77 and the Bristles). In the early stages of their career, they played a hybrid of punk, funk, metal, and just about anything else they felt like including. They were known for their energetic live shows, albeit with an amateurish element on their recordings at that stage. Soon, they had whittled it down to their own brand of punk, and become one of the most popular bands in the punk scene.

The Bouncing Souls are one of the best selling and longest lived of the punk bands from New Jersey, following the legacy of previously successful punk bands Adrenalin OD and the Misfits.

The Bouncing Souls signed with Epitaph in 1997 and released Bouncing Souls later that year. While it contains some Bouncing Souls classics like "Cracked," "Kate is Great," and "East Coast! Fuck You!," certain tracks on the record are anticlimactic in comparison to their low-fi earlier recordings. Greg himself stated on Do You Remember? 15 Years of the Bouncing Souls that "It's a CD of unfinished songs." Hopeless Romantic followed in 1999. Hopeless Romantic has been heralded for admixing poignant lyrics with their melodic rapidly-paced punk style. Soon after the album's release, personal problems arose between the band and long-time drummer Shal Khichi which resulted in his departure from the band. He was replaced by former Skinnerbox and Murphy's Law drummer, Michael McDermott.
