    Not only one of my favorite bands, my band played this song at our high school battle of the bands in 1992. I still have it on video from the public access tv station. they bleeped out the part where I sang about tubes, as in waves. I think they thought I was talking about a bong. These guys were great and put out 3 great albums. I can only assume Brad from Sublime was a Surf Punks fan. 40 Oz and a Surf Punks songs are very close.

    I was huge into them in the 70s and 80s. The drummer, Dennis Dragon, was the brother of Daryl Dragon (The Captain in The Captain and Tenille). Many people regarded the group as a joke band, but they were the real deal. They could really rock in concert.

    I named one of my custom builds after the title of one of their tunes:

    Too bad they couldn't find a model who was less inhibited about her purpose in this work of genius.

    Surf Punks: Hey, Mr. Lifeguard & Sublime 40 oz to Freedom. The first time I heard 40 oz I immediately thought it sounded like Hey Senior Lifeguard. At least the intro.

    Its fun to think that somewhere out there a little kid is making a startling discovery about his grandma right now. :lol::lol::lol:

    Cool band though, a bit too polished to call themselves "Punk" but that's OK.

    The punk moniker in Surf Punks had nothing to do with punk pusic. It was more about them being punk (problem) surfer kids.

    Other bands like these guys and Sublime are The Aquabats and The Ziggens.

    The Aquabats were ska/rock self-styled superheroes for kids, who sang about positive things kids needed to hear...as well as funny/goofy stuff.



    The Ziggens are a surf/ska/punk/blues/everything-else sort of band I think was actually better than Sublime because they could cover just about any style of music and kill it. They were not just goofy too...they had some seriously good music about serious stuff.

    But this is not that:




    Here's a serious one.

    I remember seeing The Surf Punks on The People's Court years ago. If I remember correctly, their promoter was suing them because they were giving away too many free t shirts and he wanted them to pay him his cut of the profits for the shirts. At the end, they gave a free t shirt to Doug Lewellen just to piss him off.

    They used to play parties in the SF Valley where I grew up. Always was a big fan. They put on a great show and really rocked, but all the chicks were “like oh my god, these guys aren’t surfers!”
