By now, everyone knows Me First and the Gimme Gimmes as the all-star-punk-rock supergroup-cover-band that exploded on the scene in the 90’s, and made every other shitty pop punk band’s ironic covers obsolete with their debut Have a Ball. They’ve since tackled almost every genre under the sun, with albums of showtunes, R&B jams, classics from the 50’ and 60’s, pop hits, cheesy mom-favorites, country songs and most recently a slew of songs by Australians for their 2011 EP entitled Go Down Under. Well, never ones to rest on their laurels, the boys from the Gimmes are back with their most ambitious project to date, one that takes them far from the dingy back rooms of suburban roadhouse karaoke bars, halfway around the world to the clean, brightly lit karaoke bars of Tokyo. That’s right folks, Spike, Mike, Joey, Chris and Dave are back and this time shit’s gotten positively Japanese with the latest EP Me First and The Gimme Gimmes Sing In Japanese! And not since American Ninja has Japanese culture been so thoroughly beaten at its own game.

And they’re not stopping with Japan. The Gimmes are planning on doing ep’s in Spanish, Italian, German and French in the near future, thereby answering the eternal question “is every single culture on earth better if a bunch of drunk bay area weirdos add their own twist to it?” with a resounding ‘YEAH! YEAH! YEAH!”
