I think that title says it all.

The only one of those bands I really like is Goo Goo Dolls. Used to love them but I don't listen to them much anymore. Iris is a beautiful song though.

Hootie and the Blowfish are playing at the golf course two towns from here*





(* I live in the middle of nowhere)

I do still own New Miserable Experience and Third Eye Blind's first album. They're not horrible. I dust them off every once in awhile. They're also not timeless, though. These bands are like Twinkies. A Twinkie can be tasty now and then, but they've got no nutritional value. If you eat too many of them, they give you a stomachache.

I saw the Goo Goo Dolls at the peak of the their popularity and thought they were horrible. The same for the Wallflowers when they opened for Counting Crows.

I'd add Semisonic to the list. Feeling Strangely Fine has some great songs on it, but they were on the whole forgettable. I'd go as far as to put Live in this category (for which some around here will toss things at me, I know), as well as Blues Traveler.

One good album isn't enough anymore. An artist has to be able to evolve but also put out consistently good material. I think (and deeply hope) we'll be having this same discussion about all these boys with eyeliner bands in five or eight years.

There was something about them, for sure. They were played forever on the radio during my first years in university. Bus anthems

Collective Soul were my secret indulgence for a while. Ed Roland is a bit of mastermind. Okay, mini-mastermind

No matchbox 20 love?

They were played around here because they were from Orlando... just like the Backstreet Boys

This thread is kind of a who's who of What Nearly Killed Rock In The 90's.

Don't complain about the massive rise and surging popularity of hip-hop, rap, electronica or cheesy pop (or any mix of the above) and then trumpet these bands.


Thank you.

Whatever happened to the Primitive Radio Gods? And Chumbawumba? And The Verve Pipe, not to be confused with the Verve...wtf is a Verv anyway?


ETA: verve: Energy and enthusiasm in the expression of ideas, especially in artistic performance or composition:

Oh.

Oh man, Jesus Jones! I cannot stand "Right Here, Right Now" anymore, but there are a couple of songs from that album I still like. Man, my friends and I played that CD way too much freshman year of college.

And I could have lived just fine without ever being reminded of that horrid song "The Freshman" by The Verve Pipe, thank you very much.

I worked in a record (uh ... CD) shop in the mall for a while after I graduated from college in 1995. I was always afraid of a freak earthquake hitting central Wisconsin, and I would die a horrible death buried under 6,646,732 copies of Hootie and the Blowfish's "Cracked Rear View" and Alanis Morrisette's "Jagged Little Pill." Man, talk about ubiquitous.
