Washed Up and Through the Ringer! is a 2001 album by ska punk band Catch 22. It represents a particularly complicated point in the band's history. Vocalist Jeff Davidson left the band in early 2001, leading the remaining band members to carry out a very public search for a replacement vocalist, going so far as to post an open call for would-be singers on the band's website. Washed Up and Through the Ringer serves as a sort of "history so far" for the band, presenting the 1999 Washed Up! EP in its entirety, three tracks that previously were only available with a limited edition release of Alone in a Crowd, two brand new tracks (one of which, "To Be Continued", was indeed continued as "Chin Up" on 2003's Dinosaur Sounds), and a handful of fan-recorded live tracks from 2000 featuring songs from Alone in a Crowd and Keasbey Nights. This was the band's last studio release for almost two years, during which time they decided to soldier on with no dedicated vocalist.
