Everclear

Though Everclear's Northwestern grunge-punk style was hardly revolutionary when the band rose to popularity in 1995, the trio's hook-ridden songs and Art Alexakis' "us against them" lyrics were taken to heart by bored Gen-X teens. Everclear's sound reflected the rock, post-punk, and singer/songwriter influences of frontman Alexakis, including acts like X, the Replacements, the Pixies, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and Elvis Costello. Also instrumental to Everclear's success was the group's obsessive touring schedule and aggressive self-promotion tactics.

Art Alexakis (born Apr. 12, 1962, West Los Angeles, California) was raised in a lower-middle-class household by his single mother. His father left the family during Alexakis' childhood, an incident that would later pepper many of Everclear's most popular songs. The dual deaths of his brother and girlfriend (his brother by heroin overdose; his girlfriend by suicide) convinced him to kick his own cocaine habit in the mid-'80s, and he later formed a country-punk band named Colorfinger in San Francisco. The group released one LP on Alexakis' own Shindig label, but the album (and an EP) became out of print after distributor Rough Trade folded. The band subsequently imploded, and Alexakis moved to his girlfriend's hometown of Portland, OR. In 1992, he met Craig Montoya (born September 14, 1970) and Everclear's first drummer, Scott Cuthbert; the trio recorded a demo EP for $400 and released the disc on Portland's Tim/Kerr label. Alexakis grew frustrated with the company's lack of promotion, so he hired an independent promoter to push the EP and personally mailed copies to media outlets and distributors.

Everclear then added several songs to the EP, retitled it World of Noise, and issued the expanded package in 1993 on Fire Records. Throughout the following year, the group toured relentlessly and underwent several key changes, replacing Cuthbert with Greg Eklund (born April 18, 1970) and signing to Capitol Records in June. Their second album, Sparkle and Fade, appeared in 1995 and attracted a much wider audience. Alternative radio outlet lent their support to the singles "Santa Monica" and "Heroin Girl," and the album eventually rose to platinum status. Meanwhile, Alexakis became a major alternative media figure, even reporting from the 1996 political conventions for MTV. So Much for the Afterglow followed in 1997 and went double-platinum, particularly due to the success of three Top Five modern rock hits "Everything to Everyone," "I Will Buy You a New Life," and "Father of Mine." Alexakis had become a father himself around this time, and the birth of his daughter prompted the singer to become even more politically active. He testified in front of Congress regarding child support laws and campaigned with several presidential tickets, among other efforts. Everclear was also hailed Modern Rock Artist of the Year by Billboard magazine in 1998.

A double-barreled concept effort appeared in 2000 with the poppy Songs from an American Movie, Vol. 1: Learning How to Smile surfacing in early fall and the harder-rocking Songs from an American Movie, Vol. 2: Good Time for a Bad Attitude appearing a few months later. (Learning How to Smile was initially planned as a solo effort for Alexakis, given its deviation from the band's standard three-piece rock sound.) Both records produced several charting singles, with the AM radio pop of "Wonderful" finding the most success. Everclear returned with the more straightforward Slow Motion Daydream in 2003 before the aptly titled greatest-hits compilation Ten Years Gone: The Best of Everclear 1994-2004 appeared in October 2004. In between, Alexakis ventured on a brief 2003 solo acoustic tour before the entire Everclear lineup would shift around him. He remained the only original member as the group expanded past a trio to include bassist Sam Hudson, guitarist Dave French, drummer Brett Snyder, and keyboardist Josh Crawley. By then off the Capitol roster and back in the indie world, the newly minted Everclear released Welcome to the Drama Club on Eleven Seven Music (in association with ADA/Warner Music Group) in September 2006. Spearheaded by the single "Hater," the album was meant to be an homage to some of Alexakis' earliest influences. Drama Club cracked the Billboard Top 200 and hit number 11 on the Top Independent Albums chart, while Everclear subsequently headed out on a college club tour through the fall. 2008's The Vegas Years was a set of covers; 2009's In a Different Light, an album of acoustic reinterpretations of the group's songs, turned the tables. Two years later, Everclear continued to look backward, cutting a bunch of new versions of their hits -- along with a few covers -- on the album Return to Santa Monica. Their first album of new material in six years, Invisible Stars, arrived in in the summer of 2012. ~ John Bush, Rovi

This band was HUGE in the 90's.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed in the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover'a name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
They rocked it at the Hanger 24 Air Show!
These guys used to be an awesome group putting out decent hits. Now it seems they can't do anything except rehash their hits in hopes of them catching on again. Go back, look at what made you the Modern Rock Artist of the Year and bring back the original members.

This songs pretty deep
This song hurt and gives strength all at the same time. My father abandoned me and my brother and my mother at an early age. I never went to his grave on his final day. I don't regret.

This freaked me out This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this on ten comments in the next ten minutes, you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain you will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry This freaked me out This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this on ten comments in the next ten minutes, you will have the best day of yo
I'm actually pretty upset with them messing up the beats of all my favorite songs.
LOVE IT! best band ever follow me and ill follow you!
Art always reminded me of the boyfriend my mom had after she split from my dad (just his looks Arts cool that dudevwasnt) but i stil Love Everclear. He stayed stuck on the "divorce sucks" thing a little too long. But I still love them even Wonderful which was a little too kid voiced.

Their new cover of Rich Girl is F'n awesome.

lshirley2011
@Campbell.me l o d y - The song was "Why Don't You & I" by Santana with Alex Band from The Calling. Chad Kroeger's version wasn't as good in my opinion
The person below me doesn't understand the use of a ' or plural s after a non plural s.
Art Alexakis' us against them
Wrong. It's Art Alexakis's.
prosser.coll e e n

To those who have dissed Everclear's recent work, one reason an artist will re-record a song is because they changed labels and they want to put a song on an anthology, for example, published under that new label. Hope this helps.
lets all listen to this crap so we can lose our spines and be panty wastes puke
i dont call him my father anymore he doesnt deserve the title or priviledge.. Sperm Donor

clumsy_cat13
terrible album
etsnyder.con t a c t
I was disappointed when I saw Everclear live and realized the band only had 1 of the remaining members from the original group that did my favorite album so much for the afterglow. The trio was much better and the drummer didn't even know the rythm to many of their classic songs. =(
New versions of old songs and greatest hits albums when they only had a small handful seems like a desperate attempt for a washed up band to make money. If they were as great as people claim I'd expect something new from them instead of re-re-re-rel e a s e s of the same stuff.
aireeuh
I don't know why they ever redid all those songs in 2009... they sounded so auto-tuned and boring. the old stuff was so much more emotional sounding!
