Shootenanny! /ˈʃuːtənæni/ is a 2003 studio album by Eels. The name comes from a neologism coined by Eels front-man Mark Oliver Everett, for "a social gathering at which participants engage in folk singing and sometimes dancing a hootenanny, but mostly the shooting of guns."
"Saturday Morning" was released as a promotional single with the B-sides "Her", "Waltz of the Naked Clowns", and "Sad Foot Sign".
The album was recorded live in studio with minimal production. The album peaked at #145 on the Billboard 200
Shootenanny! was generally well received by critics.
A negative review came Pitchfork, who gave the album a 2.8/10 rating and wrote, "Musically and lyrically, E is spent - out of ideas, out of innovation, unable to cough up anything but by-the-numbers pop in the fourteen originals he wrote for this disc. ... E can do better. Much, much better."
