Decent pop punk band. A lot funnier than most other crappy pop punk bands.

1985 was written by SR71.

It's not a nonsense song about the 80s it's about a woman whose grown up and found she's outdated. Her kids think she's old and uncool, but when she was young she actually had a life. Only called a nonsense song by dumbfucks who don't actually listen to the lyrics. What it really is is a lovesong to the 80s and to the people who were young then and ended up having to grow up, live dreary lives, and get dissed and ignored by their oh-so-hip kids. Especially funny because those same retarded kids, who don't believe their parents were actually people love this song.

But none of that matters, because as said, the song was written by SR71.

Bowling for Soup is OK. Mostly they suck, but occasionally they make a song that cracks you up unexpectedly. Like the Bitch song, which starts off tradional crappy emo and then catches you off by going into a stupid funny chorus.

They also pick good songs to cover.
Debbie just hit the wall, she never had it all
One Prozac a day, husband's a CPA
Her dreams went out the door
When she turned twenty-four
Only been with one man
What happened to her plan

She was gonna be an actress
She was gonna be a star
She was gonna shake her ass
On the hood of White Snake's car
Her yellow SUV is now the enemy
Looks at her average life
And nothing has been alright

Since Bruce Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985

Woohoohoo
(1985)
Woohoohoo

She's seen all the classics, she knows every line
'Breakfast Club', 'Pretty in Pink'
Even 'St. Elmo's Fire'
She rocked out to Wham!
Not a big Limp Bizkit fan
Thought she'd get a hand
On a member of Duran Duran

Where's the mini-skirt made of snake skin
And who's the other guy that's singing in Van Halen
When did reality become TV
Whatever happened to sitcoms, game shows
On the radio was

Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985

Woohoohoo

She hates time, make it stop
When did Motley Crue become classic rock
And when did Ozzy become an actor
Please make this stop, stop
Stop, and bring back

Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
Cause she's still preoccupied
With 1985

Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she’s uncool
Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985

-Maybe when we get old someone will write a song like that, nostalgic for us in the 90s

Bowling for soup are the greatest band ever!
by Jonny September 04, 2003
Started in 1994, they have produced 7 albums. Signed to Jive in 1999, they have produced 3 albums on that label: 2000's Let's Do It For Johnny, 2002's Drunk Enough To Dance (2nd Release in 2003), and 2004's A Hangover You Don't Deserve.

'Girl All The Bad Guys Want' was nominated for a Grammy in 2003, but they lost to No Doubt.

Great live, and they have to be one of the best bands ever.

And yes, 1985 was written by SR71, but it went through Jaret and was re-written.
Bowling For Soup = Best Band Ever. End of story.

Stop saying crap about this band, they make me happy when I am sad and they made me laugh when I cry. If a band has the power to do that they have achieved everything they need to in my opinion. I hope these guys make loads more albums cus even just reading the thnkyous in the lyrics booklet cracks me up, then I actually LISTEN to the lyrics. Good fun and hilarious. These guys are absolutely genious.
Ooooooh I feel so sad ... My boyfriend has just dumped me and my eyes are sore from crying so much ...
*Puts Bowling for Soup on*
