Anchors Aweigh is the sixth studio album by New Jersey punk band the Bouncing Souls. It was released on August 26, 2003. "Todd's Song" is a tribute to Todd Eckhardt, a former bassist for The Pietasters, who died in 2001. "I'm From There" is in reference to the departure of previous drummer, and long-time friend, Shal Khichi from the band, who left soon after the release of Hopeless Romantic.

Trivia[edit]

The song "Sing Along Forever" was featured on the Burnout 3 soundtrack in the video game Burnout 3 Takedown by Criterion Games
