i never understood dancing guy. so he just dances? why is he credited on their albums? does he dance in the studio while they're performing? seems like that would get really annoying, really fast.

DANCING GUY = REINCARNATION OF SID VICIOUS

He is credited because he is a Bosstone. He may not play an instrument, but he's a Bosstone nonetheless...

What if the Beatles had a dancer? Would he be a Beatle?

It's called a hype man

"i never understood dancing guy. so he just dances? why is he credited on their albums? "

He was a fan that was too young to get into their first shows. The workaround was to simply say he was part of the band. He has since gone on to managing part of the band.

The Bosstones were awesome back in the '90s. New album is decent.

That would have been up to John, Paul, Ringo, and George. Not you.

These guys will always have a place in my music heart. I saw them in 95 on the Lollapalooza tour. It was one of my first shows. No one was in the audience and they were fun. I would probably be more critical if I saw them now but I will quote Zoolander when it comes to this band
"Sting would be another person who's a hero. The music he's created over the years, I don't really listen to it, but the fact that he's making it, I respect that. I care desperately about what I do. Do I know what product I'm selling? No. Do I know what I'm doing today? No. But I'm here, and I'm gonna give it my best shot."

Funny that all the people that make Sausage & Hummus comments have a soft spot for The Mighty Mighty Bosstones.

Proves you're all a bunch of fags that weren't always hip.

'97?- You should have done a better Wikipedia search, douchebag.

Posted by Anonymous | June 6, 2012 4:25 PM

Bosstones were awesome in 1989-1991 only, which means they've not been awesome for more than 20 years, which is about twice as long as the Beatles were together.

Posted by Anonymous | June 6, 2012 4:34 PM

'97 is when they had a hit and when people actually started to recognize this joke of a band.

Frat rock......dark times

All their songs sound the same -- how about a band with real diversity from song to song: the iPods.

I like how there's a picture of MCA staring at me disapprovingly after I pressed play on that dumbass video.

That video is a gift to all the ska metal pedophiles who have stuck with them through the years.
