"Sounds like Green Day if they'd never gone all concept album on our arses and started listening to the Buzzcocks and the Undertones instead. Good stuff." - Nite Songs

"Well written and well recorded tunes with excellent vocals. It makes you hanker to hear the whole thing, which is the idea of course." - Paul Blowfish

"Another once upon a time band that’s coming back, the new Young Hasselhoffs song “Life Got In The Way” is the title track from an upcoming album. The band lines up with the pop punk crowd (leaning towards the pop side), and this one opens with some infectious lead guitar and a vocal melody that does a fun wobble on the ending “oh-uh-oh’s”. That catchiness goes up a notch again on the chorus and the whole thing is going to get me back listening over and over. Looking forward to the full length." - That's Good Enough For Me

"Enter The Young Hasselhoffs from Omaha, Nebraska in the U.S.A. With the title song of its upcoming LP the band makes no qualms about loving music from long ago, while at the same time perfecting the genre with a 100% pop gem. If the perfect powerpop-punkpop single exists, The Young Hasselhoffs are in close reach of that holy grail." - WoNo Blog

Omaha, Nebraska's punk rock romantics return with an award winning blend of pop-punk meets doo-wop on their brand new full length release Life Got In The Way.

Friends since high school, middle aged pop-punkers The Young Hasselhoffs are reunited after a decade-long sabbatical, that followed a decade-long sabbatical, punctuated by a brief reunion. Confused? Let’s start over. Matt, Jason, and Phil started TYH in 1998, right out of high school. They very quickly earned a reputation for writing super-catchy, sugary sweet, pop punk meets doo-wop tunes and released their debut full length CD "Win A Date With" on the legendary Melted Records in 1998. TYH continued their historic pop punk legacy with a few more CD and 7inch releases on Insubordination and Far Out Records, made numerous comp appearances, and three US tours, reality intervened. The rock dream seemed dead. Matt, Jason and Phil decided to go their separate ways. And they did.

Ten years later.
In 2011 the band recorded “Obsolete Man,” and reunited for one final live performance at InsubordinationFest, for which Jason and Phil had to relearn their respective instruments. Shortly following the record’s release, the band was politely threatened with legal action due to an alleged trademark issue regarding their name, and the band was once again done for good. Or was it? It wasn’t.

(Another) ten years later.
Despite being considered largely irrelevant as an actual band 20 years ago, Phil managed to talk everyone into making a new record. Matt wrote demos from Colorado, Jason and Phil re-relearned their instruments in Omaha, and (with the help of the internet) they were ready to record with producer Andrew Berlin at the Blasting Room in August 2021.
