Hang-Ups is Goldfinger's second album, released September 9, 1997. Many of the album's tracks feature more of a ska sound than their debut. The album's first single "This Lonely Place" was not as successful as "Here in Your Bedroom", a single off their debut album, but it did gain them numerous talk show appearances and spins of the video, which parodies the 1979 film Alien.

Like their self-titled debut, the horns on the album are provided by several members of the Orange County ska scene, most notably Dan Regan and Scott Klopfenstein of Reel Big Fish on trombone and trumpet, respectively. The song "Carlita" features Angelo Moore of Fishbone on saxophone and vocals.

"Superman" was used in several scenes for the film Kingpin.[2] Also, two years after its release, the song "Superman" was featured in the video game Tony Hawk's Pro Skater[3] , and again in 2012 in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD, a remake of fan-favorite levels from the first two games in the series.
