The Wallflowers formed in 1989, and in 1992 released their classic self-titled debut album, fwhich included songs like “For the Life of Me,” and “Another One in the Dark.” From there they skyrocketed with 1996’s “”Bringing Down the Horse,”” which went quadruple platinum, won two Grammys, and was praised by everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Tom Petty. It produced famous hits like “6th Avenue Heartache,” “One Headlight,” “Three Marlenas,” and “The Difference.”
The Wallflowers went on to release three more records between 2000 and 2005, absolute rock and roll perfection, and more radio smashes like “”Murder 101″”, a duet with Elvis Costello, “”Sleepwalker,” and “”Here He Comes.” When it comes to alternative rock music, it’s no surprise that the Wallflowers absolutely dominated the scene during their prime.
Before their omnipresent 1995 single “Good” hit No. 1, before their debut album “Deluxe” went double-platinum, before popular shows such as Desperate Housewives licensed their song “Juicy,” before Taylor Swift attested to their timeless appeal by covering their track “Breathless” — New Orleans’ Better Than Ezra was a pop-rock act paying its dues, traveling from town to town in a ramshackle van. Over two decades after the band formed, that vigilance still resonates strongly with the trio, who were finally rewarded after seven years of stubbornly chasing their dreams. Though they were told countless times by managers and A&R reps to throw in the towel, “Good” — a joyous anthem about pulling the plug on a relationship — silenced skeptics.
Better Than Ezra has always possessed an uncanny ability to deliver a sticky melody. It just took time for the world to figure this out.
