Ben Folds Five is the self-titled debut studio album by American alternative rock band Ben Folds Five, released in 1995. A non-traditional rock album, it featured an innovative indie-pop sound, and excluded lead guitars completely. The album was released on the small independent label Passenger Records, owned by Caroline Records, a subsidiary of Virgin/EMI.

Ben Folds Five was an American alternative rock trio formed in 1993 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The group achieved mainstream success in the alternative, indie and pop music scenes

On the live album Ben Folds Live, Folds introduces the song to the audience by saying: "This one goes out to anyone who actually signed up and is in-is gone into the armed forces. Thanks a lot. I tried, I went down to the recruiting center and I talked to them, and I thought about it, but at the end of the day, I think I was genetically inclined to be a musician. The ensemble parts are often performed by the crowds during concerts in an audience participation bit which Folds "conducts". In addition, the audience customarily sings the line, "God please spare me more rejection. Folds also frequently changes the last line from "the army" to "your mommy" or, on occasion, "all y'all's mommies". In the DVD sessions at West 54th, in the Spare Reels footage, Ben Folds Five can be seen recording the song. The lyrics are slightly different, and the horn parts are either scat sung by Folds or omitted.

Album: The Unauthorized Biography Of Reinhold Messner (1999). This song is mostly autobiographical. The parts that have been fictionalized are that Ben never had a mullet (he claims that now he has a mini mullet because the hair on the top of his head grows slower than the back), and instead of working at Chic-fil-a, he worked at a Hardee's in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Folds plays this regularly at concerts. He splits the audience in 2 and has them sing the 2 horn parts.

Ben Folds Five - Song for the Dumped Song for the Dumped Ben Folds Five. Battle of Who Could Care Less.

Well, I thought about the army Dad said, "Son, you're fucking high" And I thought, "Yeah, there's a first for everything" So I took my old man's advice Three sad semesters It was only 15 grand Spent in bed, I thought about the army I dropped out and joined a band instead. Grew a mustache and a mullet Got a job at Chick-Fil-A Citing artistic differences The band broke up in May And in June reformed without me And they got a different name I nuked another Grandma's apple pie And hung my head in shame, no.
