The Good, the Bad, and the Argyle is the debut full-length release from New Jersey punk band, The Bouncing Souls. Released on November 1, 1994, the album runs 31 minutes and 18 seconds, and has 12 songs including covers of The Strangeloves' "I Want Candy," which was renamed to just "Candy", and The Waitresses' "I Know What Boys Like."


The album got its title from the fact that some of the tracks were taken from EPs that the band released prior to the release of the full length. These 7" include Neurotic and Argyle. The song title "Lay 'Em Down And Smack 'Em, Yack 'Em" comes from the jive conversation in the movie "Airplane!". The song "These Are The Quotes From Our Favorite 80's Movies" contains quotes from various 80's movies, like Valley Girl, Breakfast Club, Better Off Dead, Some Kind of Wonderful, Rambo, and Say Anything....
