Keep Left is a semi-active wonky rock band that Phineas & Ferb creator Dan Povenmire collaborates in.

The main band members are Michael Culross Jr, Michael Walker, Dan Povenmire, and Carl Williams. All four (along with Jeff "Swampy" Marsh) are credited for having written "Today is Gonna Be a Great Day," the main theme for Phineas and Ferb. Michael Culross Jr also continues to write songs for Phineas and Ferb, most often just listed under Michael Culross.

The band probably had its formative years sometime in the 1980s while Dan was in college. They actually released two professional albums-- the first of which has almost no proof of ever existing on the Internet, currently. In fact, perhaps the most prevalent information about the band on the Internet stemmed originally from Povenmire's own YouTube channel, where he posted two performances by the band. Both albums also used to be available on, previously a CD publishing website.

On April 26th, 2014, user HomeStarRunnerTron received the CD and uploaded the tracks onto MEGA.

Keep Left, 1996

Very, very recently, Keep Left's first album appeared on, from exactly one lister.

Quoted from the listing:

"This is their self-named debut album, featuring 12 songs,

produced by Keep Left and mixed by Bruce Bouillet.

# Song Title Status
1 Olvera Street Found
2 Public Service Announcement Found
3 When She Wears Black Found
4 Karey Likes to Sing Found
5 Bigger Found
6 Nobody's Home Found
7 Ida Marlowe Found'
8 Keep the Devil Down Found
9 The Pencil Song Found
10 Sherry Wants a Baby Found
11 Angela Found
12 River's Edge Found

(Side-note: Public Service Announcement is also listed on IMDb as the theme song for a little-known political satire show called Gab's Blabs, a show which, coincidentally, appears to have disappeared entirely. Also, even more interestingly, in a recent performance, Public Service Announcement was revealed to have been the source of the long-standing running joke for Phineas and Ferb, "Yes, yes I am.")

Letters from Fielding, 2000

While currently out-of-print, Keep Left's sophomoric album is still plenty available in the Used & New section on Amazon. (It has also recently been added to Amazon Streaming, as well as Spotify.) As a precaution, if ever it disappears entirely, the original poster intends to make it available on this page, as well.

The tracklisting is shown to be:

# Song Title Status
