"It's a treat to have access to songs by...the Bosstones [and other groups] that received regional attention but never achieved the national success initially hoped for."
After their existence was called to the attention of the Boston-based ska-core band formed in 1983 and also called The Bosstones, the latter group changed its name to The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. As this earlier use of the name is not well known, contemporary references to "The Bosstones" generally refer to The Mighty Mighty Bosstones rather than The Bosstones discussed in this article.
