Hootie and the Blowfish

A lot of big things were pegged for Hootie and the Blowfish.  Their 1994 album, Cracked Rear View, dominated the radio with their mainstream appeal of Country and Blues based light Rock and Roll found a massive audience and an unexpected “cool” appeal.  They never did replicate that success and though that was expected, it wasn’t expected just how fast they seemingly fell off the radar.  They did have a period of success that most bands could only dream about but they haven’t been cited as influential in many circles.

As a dear friend used to say when we were in college together: "Hootie, NO!"

  • 14. The Cure
    After we came up with our rankings, it just seemed right for the Cure to be associated with number thirteen. The mystical number might fit the gothic image of a band (who ironically despised that label) better than any other group on this list.
