A Hangover You Don't Deserve (2004)

EW's GRADE
C+

Details Release Date: Sep 14, 2004; Lead Performance: Bowling For Soup

''1985,'' the novelty hit from Bowling for Soup's new CD, finds a soccer mom mourning the passage of time: ''When did Mötley Crüe become classic rock?'' Funny stuff -- but it's not enough to carry an album. Like a lower-SATs version of Fountains of Wayne, the Texas quartet tries to write silly/clever lyrics to go atop their high-carb pop melodies. But too much of the humor (rhyming ''Miss Texas'' with ''bigger breast-es''?) functions on a Jackass: The Band level.
