The Vandals are way past their angst filled 'Suburbia' days. Now, with their album 'Hitler Bad, Vandals Good', they just want to make people laugh. Surprisingly, The Vandals have a nice balance of both with songs like 'My Girlfriend's Dead' with lyrics that go - 'My girlfriend's dead you see, it's a total lie- but it's easier on me than having to admit that she likes someone else.' Then there's 'I've Got An Ape Drape, 'which throws out a plethora of adjectives for the short on top long on back haircut - 'Hockey Hair, Mullet, & Norco Neck Warmer, '. A Nitro Records release.

Whoa: a punk CD with a song from "The Sound of Music"

"Can you say "hysterical?!" A Simple Truth: The Vandals are awesome. These guys make punk fun. Yeah, listening to most punk bands moan and yell about how much life sucks is occasionally amusing, but the Vandals have a wonderful punky sound with any screaming or predictible and boring lyrics. And they're just so damn funny. "My Girlfriend's Dead" is a breakup song unlike ANY other breakup song ever written; "If The Government Can Read my Mind" is sweet without being obnoxiously mushy; "Come out Fighting" is awesome; "F'd up Girl" is the most shamefully funny song I've ever heard, and aftering hearing the Vandals' version of "Song Long, Farewell," The Sound of Music will never be the same again. This CD is great! It's original and it's entertaining, and you don't have to be a punk fan to appreciate it. I say buy it baby!"
A fine album by a fine band

"The Vandals are some of the funniest guys ever. I like the way they avoid the topic of polotics(i.e. They do mention the government in "If the government could read my mind"). They just write about the stupid things that pop in their heads or they witness in their everyday lives. This band is lighthearted and jovial all while keeping up a tremendous amount of energy and firing an arsenal of endless catchy punk riff's. This album is my second favorite vandals next to The Quickening. I have yet to here their new one. I love every song on this album with my favorite being...errmmm....so many to choose from....Their cover of So Long Farewell from the sound of music!!!! Yay! If you don't like this album then you are prolly an angry person with cancer or the AIDS who can't laugh and hates everything more than I do."
Great Power Punk

"This is not a masterpiece, but it has some gems amidst the so-so stuff: My Girlfriend's Dead and If The Gov't Could read My Mind are classic neo-Ramonistic pop punk. But if you're going to get this sucker, you also need The Queers "Punk Rock Confidential" and Screeching Weasel's "Television City Dream". If you add the "Forgotten Rebels" CD and any Humpers stuff, you should be one happy camper."
