The Kickovers were a rock band from Boston, Massachusetts that featured former Weezer bassist Mikey Welsh.
The Kickovers were formed in 2001, originally consisting of members Nate Albert (formerly of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones), Johnny Rioux (later of Street Dogs), Mikey Welsh (formerly of Weezer), and Joe Sirois (formerly of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and later Street Dogs) under the name "The Brakes". The name was changed due to complications with New Jersey band The Break. The Kickovers released their debut album Osaka through Fenway Recordings on April 23, 2002. The band released "Fake In Love" as a single with "Don't Look Down" as a b-side, as well as a split release with fellow Boston-based band The Damn Personals.
