Albert runs through some of his early memories with the legendary ska act, like their initial breakup in ’87, their reformation in ’89, their signing to different record labels, and filming a commercial for Converse. He then touches on how, a decade after their reformation and after much grinding, they finally scored a No. 1 hit single with “The Impression That I Get.”

Reflecting on the success of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Albert makes sure to take time to appreciate the bands that inspired him and his style. He shouts out bands like The Clash, Pixies, Dinosaur Jr., and more before recounting the band’s less-than-warm welcome at the 1995 Lollapalooza festival.
