Reviews & Opinions

MIKE DARONCO, ALLMUSIC: This is quite an improvement from their first album. Instead of the "let's play as fast as we can without any regard to the quality of our songs" mentality, there's a lot more personality and playfulness to go along with their raging adolescence. The easiest way to describe the style of Boogadaboogadaboogada! would be skatepunk with a brain and a sense of humor. True, there are some elements of that, but there are also hints of pop-punk that would eventually mature into the sound of Screeching Weasel that everyone's familiar with. The silliness is still there with songs such as 'I Hate Led Zeppelin', which has an angst-ridden Ben Weasel shouting "'Stairway to Heaven' makes me see red/Bonzo's buried, only three more left." Then there's 'I Wanna Be Naked', where after the second chorus the band breaks into the Ramones' "I Wanna Be Sedated," only with an obvious lyrical change. Overall, Boogadaboogadaboogada! is a pretty fun album that has an ultimate party feel to it, perfect for any circle pit or Thrasher skate video.

Additional Notes

Images for Roadkill pressing from Fatwreckwiki. There are also numerous pirate copies (in yellow sleeves), and a Lookout! reissue (on vinyl and CD) from 1992 in the more famous green sleeve, as well as numerous re-pressings from Recess Records in from 2004 onwards. The Asian Man CD is remastered. All versions subsequent to the Roadkill original have been remixed. The track 'Boogada' at the end of Side 1 of the 1988 pressings appears to be non-existent.
