This is just one of those bands you know, but don’t really know. Everyone knows “Slow Ride” and probably a couple of their other bigger hits—but they’ve steadily been making music for five decades.
Just when the Gin Blossoms thought the band was doomed, the single “Hey Jealousy” hit national radio in June of 1993. That runaway hit catapulted New Miserable Experience to the mainstream. Get this album today for a song.
Today’s artist is the only three-time inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, second in Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and fourth in Gibson’s “Top 50 Guitarists of All Time.” Listen to the album that launched his solo career (and score it on the cheap!).
Since they were on the rise, Fall Out Boy's label encouraged them to make a record that would enter the mainstream. Taking it as a challenge, the band released From Under The Cork Tree in May of 2005. What happened next was a bit of an anomaly.
The exact goal of this album was to get the band back on the charts and make headway in the mainstream music space. The process worked, as it would go on to be nominated for a Grammy in the Album of the Year category, and it’s their highest-selling record of all time, with nearly 15 million to date. Today, it can be yours for a song.
Pink Floyd’s music is legendary simply because there is and was nothing else like it. They are on the permanent Mount Rushmore of music icons. Their Dark Side Of The Moon follow-up album was another hit, and in fact it's considered one of the best albums of all time.
Third Eye Blind's self-titled effort was released in April of 1997. The lead single “Semi-Charmed Life” was released immediately and rose to No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. They were all over MTV, national radio and even TV gigs like Saturday Night Live—and they still get radio play today. Learn more about this group and score the album for a steal.
Moby literally played his first show to promote the album in a Virgin Megastore basement, but in 2000 he was leading the MTV Campus Invasion tour. One mega-hit and lots of exposure catapulted Moby from relative obscurity to selling nearly 15 million albums worldwide after essentially none the first twelve months.
While rare, you see band with debut albums sell millions of copies only for the follow-ups to fade into oblivion. Today’s featured band is one of those rarities. Pop on this album today and you’ll be transported to 1997.
AC/DC is iconic—what else needs to be said? This album alone has sold nearly 20 million copies worldwide. Odds are you know and are familiar with AC/DC’s hits. It’s tough to not hear them on some form of radio, even now—and today you can pick up Highway to Hell for a song so get it while it’s hot!
