Reel Big Fish is an American ska punk band from Huntington Beach, California, best known for the 1997 hit "Sell Out". The band gained mainstream recognition in the mid-to-late 1990s, during the third wave of ska with the release of the gold certified album Turn the Radio Off. Soon after, the band lost mainstream recognition but gained an underground following. The band was no longer signed to a major record label in 2006 and is currently independent. After many line-up changes throughout the years, front man Aaron Barrett remains the only founding member in the band.
Famous quotes containing the words reel, big and/or fish:
“When her guests were awash with champagne and with gin,
She was recklessly sober, as sharp as a pin.
An abstemious man would reel at her look,
As she rolled a bright eye and praised his last book.”
—William Plomer (19031973)

—Zora Neale Hurston (18911960)
“Hurry, Godfather death,
each message you give
has a dance to it,
a fish twitch,
a little crotch dance.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
