Here are all of Cobra Starship albums ranked.

4. While the City Sleeps, We Rule the Streets (2006)

“Their music can be silly at times, but that’s just added in fun and humor, which I respect them for. I haven’t heard one Cobra Starship song that wasn’t a fun, catchy romp of guitar, Gabe’s voice, and delightful keytar. This album is for people who love bands like Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, and Paramore. I loved every second of this album, and their next two albums are fantastic as well.”

3. Night Shades (2011)

“”Fool Like Me” features girl group The Plasticines and gives Night Shades one of its best, high quality moments. The production is superb, most notably because of the retro-pop feel cultivated here. Saporta sounds superb and it certainly doesn’t hurt that he has excellent backup with The Plasticines. The chorus is a definite standout: “Your daddy always said you should stay away from a fool like me, a fool like me.”

2. Hot Mess (2009)

“One of my favorite bands from the 90’s and up! Good Girls Go Bad, Hot Mess, Move Like You Gonna’ Die, and many more are included in this high energy dance fest! Get up and groove to the music best describes this awesome collection! Excellent workout music or just wanting to shake it on the dance floor. If you like to get pumped up, THIS IS IT.”

1. ¡Viva La Cobra! (2007)

“The funk element of their sound is concentrated into 2 of the songs Kiss My Sass and Scandalous, the rest is more tight than the sound from the first album. Best songs are The City is at War, Guilty Pleasure (best on the album), Angie, and Prostitution. Pretty much all the songs are good and very catchy and fun to sing to. I would definitely recommend it.”
