Cell Mates, released in February 1996, was the second album released by the band Bowling for Soup on their own Queso Records. It was a joint record with fellow Denton-based artists The V.I.M.s. The album had only released 2100 actual copies, so it is mostly impossible to get a copy. Although Cell Mates was poorly received by Bowling for Soup's existing fan base, Cell Mates set the stage for their hugely successful full-length album, Rock on Honorable Ones!!, released the following year.
