Third Eye Blind
Those of us old enough to remember the glory years of grunge also remember the horrors of the postgrunge era. The airwaves were flooded with middling, pseudorock faire that gave rise to the likes of Matchbox 20 and Creed. But Bay area band Third Eye Blind were one of the few standouts. Ditching the faux angst and chugging guitars for songs like "SemiCharmed Life," which featured sunny melodies and lyrics about crystal meth (instead of heroin), the band’s self titled debut produced a slew of singles. Currently working on their fifth album, the band proved their staying power well into the new millennium. Check ‘em out this week and see for yourself that back in the late '90s, not all music was total shit.
