5 Things: What happened to these bands?

I loved these bands. I sing to their music. Some of it makes me happy. What happened to them?

1. Everclear - As in so many of our lives, everything was not Wonderful, and maybe that is why I loved them. From their website, I see that they are touring but not with a lot of the original members. If they come to Boston, I will have to see them.

2. They Might Be Giants - Their songs are just awesome. I sing along. I get happy. I want a little birdhouse in my soul. Now they are singing for kids. Their shows must be awesome. They are in town this weekend! I wish I could go.

3. The Offspring - The more I listen to their old stuff, the more I love it.  Self Esteem, Get a Job, Pretty Fly for a White Guy, I don't know but I like it. They are still around per their website.

4. Better Than Ezra - It was just Good. I liked their music and it's good to see they are still around.

5. Spacehog - They have one of my favorite songs of all time, In the Meantime. I am not sure why I like it so much, I just do. I see they have broken up.

  1. I love your taste in music!

    I LOVE Everclear and still listen to them pretty regularly. TMBG are super fun and great live (although I saw them 10+ years ago, so maybe they aren't anymore)! Their show this weekend is a kids show, which I think is the bulk of their touring now, but I bet it would still be fun to see. And randomly, I woke up one day about two weeks ago with Better Than Ezra stuck in my head (who knows where that came from!) and ended up listening to them most of that day at work.

    I have very VERY clear memories of listening to The Offspring's Americana album for the first time when I was in high school and I totally agree with you - I recently went through all my CDs and ripped them to my computer - listening to that album again has me loving it all over again!


I love your comments!
