Bowling for Soup, American Hi-Fi
Grammy-nominated local boys Bowling for Soup have managed to parlay what in other hands could've been the makings of a one-hit wonder--"Girl All the Bad Guys Want," their jock-baiting 2002 hit--into an honest-to-goodness career making the sort of insanely tuneful pop-punk singles that sound great on Top 40 radio between 50 Cent and that new Rob Thomas joint. Last year's A Hangover You Don't Deserve (current hit: "Almost," about nearly dating Miss Texas) is a crunchy chunk of ear candy with more good jokes than you deserve. Openers American Hi-Fi plow a similar field; in their current single they dream of being the guy all the bad girls want.
