PURE AMAZING!!! One of my favorite bands of all time. Anybody who loves a lot of the "keyboard" bands that have come out in the last decade should really check out these guys!! They played at the first show I ever went to at a small coffee shop called Sacred Grounds in my hometown. Thats when I knew I wanted to play synth in a band.

Moog for the win!

Most underrated sk8-ska band.

As much as I enjoyed Heads Are Gonna Roll, it paled in comparison to Forget The World. As a ska-punk band these dudes were great, but as a synthpop band they were just above average.

Totally agree. I was not a fan of Heads Are Gonna Roll. As for Forget the World - that was a BOMB album. They even had a Police cover.

Agreed. Forget the World is way better than Heads Are Gonna Roll. If you've never listened to the Hippos....check out Forget the World first.

The Hippos did freakin' rock!

Still love Ska, and am sick of people who used to trying to admit they don't because it's "not cool." Well if the Warped tour last year was any indication of what teens think is "cool," then call me a dork. Simply disgusting, background tracks, songs that have no social message beyond being a womanizer.

Man, it's such a shame they didn't release more music.

If you're hard up for a hippos fix, Danny is playing trombone with us on this tour with hanson. I saw the hippos at chain reaction with Limbeck, it was RAD!!!
how's the hanson tour going for you guys? lots of new fans that you wouldn't normally see at your shows? i love their music but their fanbase is definitely a little different.

The hippos rock. They fit into this little world that not many could equal / come close to.

Wtf - people listen to hanson still or did i miss something? Did I just hit a page from the 90s?
