Everything in this catagory begins with Hootie & The Blowfish...what irony in a name, only equaled by The Strokes...croaking ..."Hold My Hand...croak croak croak" ....his/their way into our hearts, onto our Cd players, and right back into obscurity and into bargain bins EVERYWHERE. They/he can't get arrested in Branson MO today. What a career, but he and we didn't see the sucker punch coming, and we would be using them for beer coasters. The secret reason his his CD album made it, was that the music company lowered the list price of his debut CD to a ridiculous 9.99 retail price, literally dumping them into marketplace and into the Top Ten...amazing...and this same music company is doing the same thing with this "Pete Yorn" character....8.99 for a full length CD of music and with Tower Records and Rolling Stone magazine co-conspirators with SONY, how can the biggest dud miss ? Even a blind man can see the price rigging going on here. So where is John Ashcroft now that we need him...well, he's dodging subpeonas for his role in Enron! Counting Crows croaked too, but at least they had...have? ...some good hooks and Pretentious Style. Besides the lead singer was a major Star Screwer, so he had something going for him...so maybe it wasn't the music, right ? He had...Personality. But it wasn't enough to last, as they didn't have Talent. I love Evan Dando & The Lemonheads...since he's making a comeback now, the jury is still out. Talk about diehards ! Who are the rest of them on Your List ?
