Release date: November 2006
The Great Burrito Extortion Case is Bowling for Soup's sixth studio album and eighth album overall released on November 7, 2006 as their fifth album through Jive Records. It was originally set to be titled All My Rowdy Friends Are Still Intoxicated or We're Not Fat, We Just Have Small Heads. This album's first single to be released was "High School Never Ends", which is available on iTunes. The album got an Honorable Mention on Ultimate-Guitar's top ten albums of 2006, and debuted at #88 on the Billboard Top 200.
The album's title originated from the news ticker on the bottom of a TV screen that the group saw when in a hotel bar. The headline said "Burrito Extortion Case," which intrigued the band members.
According to the band on their official website "there are at least 12 verses' worth of total joy for every sort-of-sad chorus about an ex-girlfriend on this record."
