Dl'd some 54-40 just now. Listening to Casual Viewing now............. Pretty coo, I wouldn't call it the best song of the year though. I don't really know if I can pick a best song of the year...... If I had to pick someone I would have to say..... Unemployed Boyfriend aslo by Everclear but not released as a single.
I consider 54-40 one of the most innovative bands out there, yet they get no exposure outside of Canada. They have been around a long time and have a distinct sound, include nearly every instrument under the Sun and put it all together in songs that you just want to sing along with
Everclear? Jeez...their drummer STILL hasn't learned a new beat and "Wonderful" is just "Father of Mine, Pt. 2".
And "The Fragile" was one of the WORST POS in the last few years. Trent has utterly lost it and should go lie down FOREVER!:|
My pick? Uh...been a really bad year for killer singles, but I'll go with Smashing Pumpkins' "Cash Car Star". Too bad it's unavailable in good sounding form and the band's packing it in after coming back with "Machina".
