Less Than Jake - Crash Course in Being an A**hole

I still remember the first time I saw Less Than Jake in concert. They had clowns in bondage masks (yes, terrifying) who were throwing stickers and other LTJ swag out into the crowd. That particular brand of silliness/weirdness plays out in just about everything Less Than Jake does.

This is a collection of three covers performed by Less Than Jake in their classic ska/punk style. The only odd thing about it is that they chose two songs from the 80s ("Your Love" by The Outfield and "Freeze Frame" by J. Geils band) and one from the 50s ("Teenager in Love" by Dion and the Belmonts).

Crash Course doesn't have the same slick punk sheen that Me First and the Gimme Gimmes covers do, but the covers are all still very good as punk covers go. My personal favorite is the odd track out, "Teenager in Love."
