Hey, remember when the main Hootie attempted a solo CD ... as a rapper?

Yeah, good times.

Poor Hootie. I feel bad for them. They seemed like a bunch of nice guys who had a fun bar band, stumbled into a record deal, and two years later, everyone hates them.

I remember when they played one of the MTV awards shows, and midway through whatever song they were playing, they stopped playing, raised their glasses, and toasted/thanked REM. I mean, how can you hate a band who loves REM? They had a lyric that said "he's the man I love the most / Stipe's not far behind"!

Alas, poor Hootie. I knew him well.

Everyone should love R.E.M. If they don't, then there would be a cause for worry.

Automatic For The People is the record that many of these lame post-grunge bands attempted to make and they all failed. Automatic is a classic, full stop, and so many of the artists mentioned in this thread owe a great debt to REM.

At least HATB were open about it.

Hey, if we're talking about pop/rock mid-90s American musical landscape, you HAVE to talk about Hootie.

Seriously, it's in the Constitution.

We the Hootie of the Hootie Hootie ...

Or was it that other one? Give us your tired, your hungry, your Hootie.

Now there's a timeless album. I got it for Christmas the same year I got my CD player. I'd say Out of Time and Monster also hold up much better than most if not all of the albums mentioned in this thread.

In what I can only now call a WTF pairing, I saw Radiohead open for Alanis Morrisette (I also got kicked in the head in the mosh pit during their set, though that's less important to this story). Looking back on that pairing now, I can only laugh.

I missed Radiohead opening for REM in 1999, thanks to crummy traffic between Aurora, IL and the World Music Theater.

I'm sure had I seen their set, I would totally love them now.




Or not.

It wasn't just the traffic. If my friend's brother hadn't drug his damned feet leaving his place, we might have caught them.

Pfft. Stupid people taking their stupid sweet time.

I'm only familiar with a couple of singles by a couple of the bands on the list. I quite like "One Headlight" by Wallflowers and "Iris" by Goo Goo Dolls. Jacob Dylan has a nice raspy voice,

Can we please try and keep the disease that is Radiohead out of this thread please.

This thread is to celebrate bands who, for better or worse, are the antithesis of Radiohead.

If you haven't heard Gin Blossoms "Follow You Down", you haven't lived.

And you want a supergroup? Try "Long Walk Back" Co-written by one of the Rembrandts and Jesse Valenzuela of the Gin Blossoms.

And what about Tonic. They were quality. You Wanted More, Mean To Me, If You Could Only See, Open Up Yer Eyes.
