Oolooloo is the second album by the ska/soul band The Pietasters. It was released in 1995 (see 1995 in music).

In November 2011, Connecticut's Asbestos Records and Chicago, IL's Underground Communiqué Records launched a fundraiser together on Kickstarter to reissue Oolooloo on vinyl, among other third-wave ska classics from Pilfers, Edna's Goldfish, and Suburban Legends. The funding goal was met on January 18, 2012, making Oolooloo available on vinyl that spring.[2]
