Fastball were signed to a major label, Hollywood Records, which released "Are You Ready For The Fallout?" as their debut single, but did little to promote it. The song and its album, Make Your Mama Proud
, got decent reviews, but the sales numbers wouldn't budge. The band likely would have been dropped, but Hollywood was in turmoil, so there was nobody to drop them. They got to make another album, All the Pain Money Can Buy
, which contained the single "The Way
." That one took off, leading some fans to discover "Are You Ready For The Fallout?" in their back catalog, but the song remains relatively obscure.
