"The Science of Selling Yourself Short" is a song by American ska punk band Less Than Jake, released as the second single of the album Anthem on December 2, 2003 by Sire Records. The single reached number 36 on the Modern Rock Tracks.
One of the first bands I think of when someone says "summer" is Less Than Jake. They've been a part of my summer ever since I saw them at Warped Tour 1997, in the pouring rain in the parking lot of Chicago's United Center. Any summer that goes by where I don't see the band is a sad one at best. But out of their massive catalog, the song that resonates with summer the most for me is the second single off Anthem, "The Science Of Selling Yourself Short." This easygoing ska number has a rad music video that I associate with the first time I ever saw MuchMusic USA (which later became Fuse), at the start of my senior year of college, right as I was trying to figure out just what the hell I wanted to do with my life. Oh, also: The way Roger sings "speeeeeending" in the second verse? Gets me every time. — Scott Heisel (AP)
