The Mighty Mighty Bosstones - Devil's Night Out (1989)

The Bosstones' debut is an energetic, skankin' party album fusing ska with punk and hard rock, with more of an emphasis on ska than the band would show on later records. The band shifts freely between styles, making Devils Night Out their most spirited, freewheeling collection of ska-core. Highlights include the humorous "Hope I Never Lose My Wallet," "A Little Bit Ugly," and "The Bartender's Song."
