California (Bumpin in my trunk)I was in high school in the mid 90s so this era basically defined my love for grungey rock and its various derivatives. Hell I suspect most of my current ipod playlist is probably of bands that were big in that era or who idolised the same bands I did. Also gave me a chance to catch the tail end of some great Aussie rock acts from the 80s whose back catalogues I eventually got into.
I always loved Amazed + Change the World at the end of that album. They've been disappointingly hit and miss since that era - from Conspiracy of One to Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace there was always a smattering of good songs but never a good album. Days Go By was an improvement but there's a really crappy couple of songs in the middle... one of which was the lead single. Go figure.
******* awful that song. They need to step away from novelty songs. They did them well in the 90's, not a good hit rate since. Lightning Rod is the best song they've done since Americana
