look up any word, like bae:

(1) an acronym for
Phake
Hippie
Ivy-leaguers
Smoking
Hemp

(2) a faux psychedelic jam band from the suburbs of Main Line New Englend that think they're "funky." They have some good songs, and I'll admit those boys can jam, but come on! They're so overrated! Most of their fans are also "funky" suburban soul brother wannabe hippies who actually have no idea what true funk is. In fact, many Phish fans I know hate real black funk bands like Parliament, JamesBrown, and the Ohio Players, and only like white jam bands like Phish, the String Cheese Incident, the Dead, and all those other posers.
Phish have one or two good songs, but don't overrate them!

Real Rock N Roll, not a tatoo and piercing teenage angst band, the real deal, they play instruments, and their concerts are filled with love, not broken bones from the mosh pit. Phish is ROCK N ROLL

A band that people with little musical taste and smaller minds try to convince themselves is awful because they have no concept of what music could or should be. These simple minded fools should learn about music (chord structure, accidentals, time signatures, scales, etc.) and then they would understand Phish's brilliance. Too bad these morons waste their time listening to crappy metal bands that can only pound power chords with tons of distortion, beat the shit out of crash cymbals, and scream like they are on the receiving end of a colonoscopy, which they probably enjoy.
Phan1: Phish is probably the best band in the world. The musical composition of their works is incredibly complex and technically difficult. Their concerts are amazing and never the same, because they are proficient enough on their instruments to be able to improvise. Their songs are amazing and never the same, because they can remember more than four chords without having to get a tutor. But don't worry buddy, just because you can't understand the lyrics, it doesn't matter. When you get past fourth grade, I'm sure you'll start to understand what they mean.

Metal Man1: Hey man, there are lots of 26 year olds in fourth grade. You got any Marlboros?

A band that preaches love and happiness rather than hating your parents and fuckin' bitches. Kind of like Jesus.

words can't describe what Phish can do on stage. for the people who bash them... they don't have the right mindset. And that's good... because we don't care.

Oftened generalized as "granola rockers" or as the band that picked up the mantle of the Grateful Dead, The music of Phish draws from styles and genres including rock (in its loosest sense), jazz, blue grass, funk. Phish has been known to perform in wetsuits, on flying hot dogs, with gospel choirs and using a vacume cleaner.

Phish is, first and foremost, a jam band. Concerts are made up of long periods of instrumental rocking and chord progression manipulation and expansion whereas studio versions of songs more often list more "filler" songs (although they are still good) and shortened versions of the huge concert warhorse pieces.

Phish is:
1) Trey Anastasio (Lead vocals, Guitar)
2) Mike Gordon (Bass, Vocals)
3) Page McConnel (Anything with a keyboard, Vocals)
4) Jon Fishman (Percussion, Vacume Cleaner)

Phish sampler songs (to get you into the band)
1) Run Like An Antelope
2) The Squirming Coil
3) You Enjoy Myself
4) Divided Sky
5) Mike's Song

In parallel to their beloved band, Phish fans have a reputation for carrying the mantle of the Dead Heads. This includes following there band on tours, setting up shop in the parking lot, partaking in anything that might enhance the concert experience (particularly, Marijuana, Ecstasy, LSD). Phans, as they have come to be known, can come from any background though. Neo-hippies and those of us who tend to conform a little more can unite at a Phish show. The sense of brotherhood and unity is welcome to anyone who can appreciate good music.

Phish stopped playing after their farewell tour Summer of 2006 that culminated in a final show at Coventry, Vermont.
"Mom did you steal Billy Breathes again?"

"Here, let me pass you the bong so I can get out Picture of Nectar."

"We were stuck in traffic on the highway for hours trying to see Phish at the Great Went!"
