Get Stoked on It! is the debut studio album by American rock band The Wonder Years, released through No Sleep Records on October 30, 2007. The album features guest vocals from Rachel Minton (Zolof the Rock & Roll Destroyer), Bob Wilson (Letxdown), and Brooke Schwartz (CDC).[3] No Sleep released a digital-only reissue of the album on May 15, 2012. The album was remixed, remastered and given a new cover. Commenting on the re-release, lead singer Dan Campbell described the original as a "train wreck", but said since the remaster had been paid for its release was "inevitable". He said about the album, "If you like the record, enjoy the new mixes. If you hate the record, I'm on your side."[4]
