I have recently re-discovered them, and its an obsession now. My favorite song by them is I Will Buy You a New Life. But my favorite album is So Much For the Afterglow. What's yours? Also, I'd like to know more about Alexakis' history and background. I researched some, and couldn't find much. Care to fill me in?

Dude. His "Behind the Music" episode was freaky shit. His youth was fucked up, which almost makes me feel guilty when I rip on him for whining about his life in all of his lyrics.

They're okay, but I like them. This site might be something you'll find interesting. http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:kpfwxqwhld0e~T1

I didn't read it, but usually that site is pretty good about biographies of artists.

It must be said that, yup, So Much For The Afterglow is one kickass classic '90s album indeed.

Love that disc so much.

Christ Venom, I was hoping you'd bitch and whine about how shitty this band was and how they suck, like you do about everything else, but noooooo. You like this band. God you suck.

Im not too heavy into them but that is my favorite song by Everclear as well. The lead singer definately had a rough youth but I like the lyrics to "I will buy you a new life". Father of Mine is another one I like.

Everlast was so much better...

*Insert standard joke about how they wrote one song then re-recorded it over and over again with different lyrics*

I knew I was going to make that mistake. I do prefer Everlast though :)

I like Everclear, but I only have two of their albums, Sparkle & Fade and So Much for the Afterglow. I'm not actually a fan of the new stuff.

Love that disc so much.

And yes, I agree that So Much for the Afterglow is classic album of 90s, and is my most favorite Everclear album.

Definitely one of my favorite alt-rock bands of the 90s. Nothing groundbreaking, but they know who to write a solid tune.

I havenít paid too much attention to their later stuff, but I still love So Much for the Afterglow and Sparkle and Fade.
