Ska-Punk Legends The Mighty Mighty Bosstones Announce Breakup


The legendary Ska-Punk band The Mighty Mighty Bosstones‘ four decades-long story is coming to an end.

The band from Boston announced their decision to split on Facebook and their website on Thursday.

“After decades of brotherhood, touring the world and making great records together, we have decided to no longer continue on as a band,” The Mighty Mighty Bosstones wrote.

“Above all, we want to express our sincere gratitude to every single one of you who have supported us,” the band added. “We could not have done any of it without you. Love Always, The Mighty Mighty BossToneS.”

The Bosstones released 11 studio albums during their nearly 40-year long career. When God Was Great, released in 2021 was their final album.

The 1990s were the Bosstones’ golden era after signing a deal with Mercury Records.

“The Impression That I Get,” from their 1997 record Let’s Face It, was the Bosstones’ biggest hit.

Ever since the band’s inception in 1983, lead vocalist Dicky Barrett, bassist Joe Gittleman, tenor saxophonist Tim “Johnny Vegas” Burton and dancer Ben Carr remained constant members.
