    The first thing that came to mind was Sleepytime Gorilla Museum. Especially if you can show video of Nils Frykdahl to complement the audio. I was told by a reputable source (the late Progeezer) that...

    I couldn't agree more. Admittedly, though, both My Arms, Your Hearse and Heritage get fewer spins than the other 11. I very much prefer clean vocals. That being said, Blackwater Park is full of...

    The reason Sing Me Away wasn't a hit was probably because MTV didn't play the video. Don't ask me why, but that was the only Night Ranger video, at least as far as the first three albums are...
