Taken from Wikipedia.com:
Five Lessons Learned was the fourth full-length album by Californian punk rock band Swingin' Utters. Released in 1998, it was their second album on Fat Wreck Chords.
This album's title track was used on the video game Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, perhaps making it the band's most widely-heard song. "I Need Feedback", however, was the only single released from this album.
"Five Lessons Learned" is mainly an album of short, fast songs in the 'punk revival' style - "I Need Feedback" borrows a riff from The Damned's Neat Neat Neat - but there is also a ska-esque song ("Unpopular Again"), and an Irish folk-style song ("Fruitless Fortunes"), hinting at the band's future direction, and that of the side-project, the Filthy Thievin' Bastards.
The outer and inner cover art is by photographer Steve Zeigler and features black-and-white shots involving guns, crime and murder scenes (in one picture, the date "2-14-47" is etched in chalk).
The presence of the head of the Fat Wreck Chords label, NOFX's Fat Mike, is felt in that he co-produces and plays bass guitar on "Unpopular Again". Another of the many guest musicians is Chris Shiflett, later of Foo Fighters.
