Our list of essential summertime albums continues to grow with the addition of a classic from Boston ska-punks The Mighty Mighty Bosstones.
I can’t take credit for this one, though. It was Dave who spoke up when I asked what album I should feature next in Summertime ROCK.

The opening drums on Noise Brigade, segue to Rascal King, then bring it down with Royal Oil before the most recognizable ska guitar riff of all time kicks in for Impression. Phenomenal 4 track summer starter pack
He’s not wrong. That 1-2-3-4 punch is as strong as can be and still stands up 22 years after the album’s release in spring of 1997. And if you remember that summer, “The Impression That I Get” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart at the end of June. So the summertime credentials are solid.
