It's been twenty years of butt jokes and punk rock for the Dallas band, Bowling for Soup, and in honor of such a momentous benchmark the band is releasing a best-of compilation, Songs that People Actually Liked: Volume 1 (1994-2003). The album is out this week and is kind of amazing. Jaret Reddick, singer and guitarist for the band, took some time to answer a few questions about Bowling for Soup's rise to punk rock-dom. Check out the interview here.

People on Vacation is the unlikely pairing of Bowling For Soup's Jaret Reddick and Smile Smile's Ryan Hamilton. Despite their differing backgrounds, the Texans come together to combine the pop punk sensibilities of the former with the indie rock background of the latter. The result will please fans of both bands and newcomers alike. Thanksgiving comes early on their AP.net profile, where you can stream "It's Not Love." Their debut EP, The Carry On, comes out tomorrow. Leave your thoughts in the replies.
