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It's not a nonsense song about the 80s it's about a woman whose grown up and found she's outdated.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

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

Bowling For Soup is an amazing band. All these haters that say they are pointless are stupid! Look at Star song and Much More Beautiful Person. Both mean to love yourself and be happy. Im Gay is just about how haters are bringing down the people who jut want to be happy. The love songs are not about fairy tale love. In Why don't I Miss you it's about how burning up never felt so write. They are not like Taylor Swift songs. Clearly you have taste in true music. You can tell they just want to have fun and live! They don't care about looks or being all cool with the dark clothe. I love this band. They changed my life. And they are fun, immature and cute :) No matter age you can always be immature and have a fun life!
I went to see Bowling For Soup, their song I'm Gay made me realize happy is actually fun intead of sulking.

A Texas based pop-punk band who KICK ASS!!! BFS are gods, I don't care what you say! They are hilarious and will make you feel better when you're sad! Everyone who doesn't like them has probably only heard 1985 and thinks "wow they suck they don't even write their own songs!" That's not true!!! SR-71 passed the song on to Jarret to use as his own! It doesn't matter! The haters won't even listen to ROHO, Lets Do It For Johnny, Or Drunk Enough to Dance! They hear one song and hate BFS forever!

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. If you want to live your life without the Ray of sunshine BFS is, watever...

(v) A makeshift mockery of bowling, using soup cans for bowling pins and anything but a bowling ball for a bowling ball.
Person No.1, "Wanna go bowling!?"
Person No.2, "Yeah!"
Person No.1,"Got any money?!"
Person No.2,"No."
Person No.1,"Hmmm... Well lets go bowling for soup."
