Red Snapper – Our Aim is to Satisfy (2000)

November 4, 2017

[Album 577/1001]

“ahh, a Red Snapper, mmm, very tasty”
– From the Wheel of Fish scene in UHF

If you saw the name “Red Snapper” in the post title and immediately starting quoting UHF, chances are, we’ll be lifelong friends.

As of course, Red Snapper, the fish species, is featured prominently in the 1989 Weird Al Yankovic film.

In the game show, Wheel of Fish, a contestant is offered a choice: do you take the red snapper (the fish she earned upon spinning the aforementioned Wheel of Fish) or do you take what’s in the mystery box?

Spoiler alert, it doesn’t end well for the contestant!




Red Snapper, the band, released the album, Our Aim is to Satisfy, in the year 2000.

And if electronica is your bag, you’ll likely find the album more than satisfactory.

Perhaps even very tasty.Our_Aim_Is_to_Satisfy_album_art

Though Red Snapper (both the band and the fish species) wouldn’t be my go-to disc/dish, I’m not sure what I would choose if I were asked the UHF question:

Should I keep the Red Snapper OR should I go for what’s in the box?

I suppose there would be certain contexts where I’d be tempted to stick with this musical Snapper.

But could I really resist the lure of the mystery box?

As long as there’s more than “nothing!” in the box, I think I’d have to see!

  1. Hey there, lifelong friend 🙂

  2. HAHA….Great Title…..

  3. Never heard of this one or Red Snapper. Doesn’t sound like it’s one that demands attention, so I guess it’s hardly surprising that I’ve never heard of it.

    • This is the only one of theirs I’m familiar with – it may be excellent, but it’s probably best described as not my cuppa!

  4. I think I saw them supporting the Prodigy. That’s all I have.

    • So between you seeing them supporting the prodigy & my tenuous link to UHF, we’re making progress with Red Snapper!

      • Agreed, one more tiny link and it’ll be like we used to be members.

  5. Are you ready Weav-aaaahhhh?!!!!!
