Rock On Honorable Ones!! is Bowling for Soup's third studio album.[1] The title is a reference to the slogan of S.H. Rider High School in Wichita Falls, Texas, where Bowling for Soup hails from. Based on the practice of Permian High School in Odessa, Texas (subject of Friday Night Lights), which is nicknamed "MOJO," Rider High adopted the slogan "ROHO" in the 1960s. Rider's sports teams are called the "Raiders," and Rider students are informed that "ROHO" stands for "Ride On Honorable Ones." This is the only Bowling For Soup album to include a horn section.

Video for "Cody"[edit]

The song "Cody" has a video, in which the band plays the song, sharing the life with a man, while some live scenes appear.

The video features Lance Morril in one of the fews ways we have to see him. Jaret Reddick had long hair when the video was filmed.
