Toilet Böys was the final studio album by the NYC punk band, the Toilet Böys. A reviewer best described the album as the following;

"Images of cocaine, blowjobs, out-of-control parties, and a confident, stylish band on stage hammering away, carrying on the CBGB's New York rock torch come to mind when The Toilet Boys' self-titled full-length blares on my stereo." [3]

According to lead-guitarist Sean, due to limited studio time, this album had a much more 'poppy' sound as opposed to their older, crunchier albums. He attributed this to the album's extensive use of Pro Tools. [4]
