90s Music: Toadies

This post could be short and sweet.  Toadies are a underrated band.  Now, I agree that their mainstream hit "Possum Kingdom" could be overrated, but it is a fantastic song nonetheless.  You know it and love it:

But how about some other tunes? For example-

"Tyler" - Did you even know this had an official video? No, you didn't. I know this because I didn't know until I searched on YouTube. This song is like a dirtier Weezer tune. Great hook, but very alternative.

"I Come From The Water" - Sick blues riff used for rock purposes. Want a piece of this song in acoustic form? Sure you do!

"Backslider" - I'm unsure why these guys were never bigger. These songs show a very strong base for them to develop. I know they are still together, but they are cursed as one-hit wonders. It's unfortunate.

"I Burn" - When I saw these guys live in the 90s, this song blew me away live.

Great band that deserves more credit. Enjoy rockin' out to these tunes.

Yeah, I'm not really sure that these guys earned their own day here. Although I do enjoy "I Come From The Water" just like every other alt-rock nerd from the 90's! The song would be a nice segue into another mid-90's obscure band and semi-hit, Seven Mary Three's "Water's Edge"!

Seven Mary Three was outstanding.
