"Turn the Radio Off" is the second full-length album by ska punk band Reel Big Fish. It was released in the U.S. in late 1996 on Mojo Records.

The single "Sell Out" received radio airplay and was a minor hit in that year. "Sell Out" also appeared on the soundtrack to the video games "FIFA 2000", "Aggressive Inline", and "Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure". The album has been certified gold.

Reel Big Fish later released a song titled "Turn the Radio Off" on their album "We're Not Happy 'Til You're Not Happy", named after this album.

ongs From "Everything Sucks"

Over half of the songs are re-recorded versions of songs from RBF's first album "Everything Sucks":
*"Cool Ending" (an acoustic version of "I'm Cool")
*"Join the Club"
*"I'll Never Be"
*"Trendy"
*"Skatanic"
*"Say Ten"
*"Beer"
*"All I Want is More" (originally titled "Fuck Yourself")
*"Snoop Dog, Baby"
*"S.R." (appeared on the original pressing of "Everything Sucks", but not the Mojo re-release)Oddly, the song "Everything Sucks" was not on the album "Everything Sucks" and may have been written after "Everything Sucks" was released. Similarly, a song titled "Turn The Radio Off" would appear on the band's 2005 album, "We're Not Happy 'Til You're Not Happy".

Trivia

*The album lists the song "In The Pit" under the Writer's credits section, although "In The Pit" is not on the album. This song would later appear on "Why Do They Rock So Hard?" as "Thank You For Not Moshing"

*Jed the Fish from KROQ-FM is on the cover

*The album title comes from a lyric in the song "Snoop Dog, Baby:" "Well, i turn the radio off/I don't want no part."

*The cover of a "clean" version of the album is a blank white field with just the band's name, the name of the album and the text of the First Amendment, incorrectly identified as "Article I". [http://www.answers.com/topic/turn-the-radio-off-clean]
