As Grunge ran its course and opened up the doors for commercially successful Alternative music, most took on a very serious tone. This was not the case for the Presidents of the United States of America who despite their politicized name were a band whose music was chopped full of irreverent humor and frivolity. As much as fun as they were, they weren’t taken seriously as a band (did they really try?), and fans weren’t interested to see what they would do next. They are not Hall of Fame caliber, but they were a fun little footnote.
