Kids’ Song of the Week : The Aquabats : Captain Hampton & The Midget Pirates

I was listening to the excellent Saturday Morning Cereal Bowl podcast this weekend with my daughter. It’s an excellent music podcast for the whole family, covering kids music from all genres. Despite the varied playlist, I was still surprised to hear a song that sounded like one of the ska-punk bands I used to listen to in the 1990s. It turned out that it was, in fact, a ska-punk band from the 1990s, The Aquabats. From being a band, albeit a very silly one, aimed at adults they ended up with their own kids TV show ‘The Aquabats Super Show’.

This song is actually from their earlier period, but works just as well as a kids song. Frantic and fun, its’ subject matter should be fairly apparent from the title. Enjoy!
