Hand Over Your Loved Ones (re-released as Suck Fony) is the second studio album released by American rock band Wheatus.

Background[edit]

Hand Over Your Loved Ones, according to frontman Brendan B. Brown, is "a really glossy pop record that had a lot of radio friendly singles on it."[5]

Release[edit]

The album was released on 8 September 2003 by Columbia Records. Due to conflicts between the band and their record label, the album was poorly promoted, failed to sell well and only one single, "American In Amsterdam", was released from it. Free from their contract with Sony, Wheatus released five songs from the album on iTunes as The Lemonade EP in 2004.

The album was re-released on 14 February 2005 under the name Suck Fony,[6] on the band's own record label Montauk Mantis Productions, after they decided to leave Sony BMG.[7] The re-released version includes two new tracks, including the original composition "William McGovern", and the Pat Benatar cover "Hit Me with Your Best Shot". The album is currently available directly from the band's official website for $10, and is available to download in various formats using a 'pay what you want' donation system where the customer can donate any amount to purchase the album. The album's title is a spoonerism of the phrase "Fuck Sony". A T-shirt was available for a period of time from the band's website with the album logo on the front.[8]
