At the height of the post-grunge, alt-rock movement of the mid-1990s, heavy guitar-driven bands with catchy hooks ruled the charts. While those sounds eventually gave way to electronic pop and hip-hop, inevitably, many of the ‘90s rock outfits fell by the wayside. However, the Los Angeles-based group Tonic soldiers on. Known for their relentless tour schedule, the band recently celebrated a twentieth anniversary (which includes a four-year break from 2004 through 2007) and still features the majority of their original members. With two Grammy nominations and a monster hit in “If You Could Only See” to their credit, the Tonic’s place in pop culture history is set, even if they haven’t replicated the commercial success of 1996’s Lemon Parade—the band continues to tour behind their greatest hits, which for fans, is the perfect drink.
