Then let this comforting thought sink in:

No matter how annoyed you are by their music, at least people don't walk up to you on the street, to this day, and call you Hootie.

I can proudly say I own their first three albums. And I paid for all of them. All who doubt Hootie can go violate themselves with a crowbar.

I liked their first album, although it got played to death. Their second album was pretty much the definition of the words "formulaic" and "mediocre." I never bothered with the 3rd.

I saw them in concert several years ago, last night of their tour to support their second album. They put on a very good, very fun show.

Yeah they were killed by overexposure for sure. Do you know that "Cracked Rear View" has sold as many copies as "Hotel California"? It's around the 12th best selling album ever, and most of the albums ahead of it are the classics such as Thriller, Eagles' Greatest Hits, Rumours, etc....

Darrius Rucker did a solo album with a really good song...I have not listened to anything but the single...I thought it was pretty good though.

I'm with you on the BodyGaurd soundtrack but I thought that Jagged Little Pill was a pretty exceptional album. Yeah, it was overplayed and, yeah, everything she's released since then has been forgetable but that first record was pretty good.

That list reflects US sales only. 'Dark Side Of The Moon' has sold more than 30 million copies world-wide, IIRC...

I think their third is their best one...

Well, I like any band that 1/5 of their biggest song is dedicated to Bob Dylan...

I haven't heard anything from Hootie in a couple of years. I think he died due to a lack of interest.

Cracked Rear View was an excellent album, Fairweather Johnson not so good. Their 15 mins of fame is pretty much over. Darius Rucker is an excellent lead singer, and he's a big NFL (Miami Dolphins) fan. So he's kind of a regular guy. Probably would be a good guy to have a beer with.

I went on... well for lack of a better term a hunting trip, with 3 other guys around the time that album was big, and they all liked country music, so it was playing over and over and OVER the whole time.

Apparently that was the only CD that was brought. It was 4 or 5 days nonstop of listening to that record when we weren't in the woods and to these honks I was with singing along with it.

I think I would be a good anger management therapist, since I got through that week without cracking one of them with a wild turkey bottle or blasting them with one of the shotguns.

Rucker came out with kind of an R&B/Blues album. It's decent.

I actully kind of liked "Fareweather Johnson." It had a few decent songs on it.

I think at one point...oh around 1995 or so, it was required for every person in America to own at least one copy of Cracked Rear View.

You're telling me. I always wondered who the people were who bought Michael Jackson's albums. I never knew anyone who bought them, or would fess up to have bought it. Alanis Morisette? Please......
Like someone mentioned earlier in this thread, the 1st Hootie album got played so much on the radio i grew more to dislike them.
