The Toadies – “Tyler” – Throw Back Thursday SOTD

A Rubberneck Gem from The Toadies

The Toadies are the band that released “Possum Kingdom” in 1994 with kids in the throes of grunge chanting the ear worm chorus “Do you wanna die”. But the band was, and is, so much more than that, and have flown under the radar for the better part of 25 years. Multiple labels, records, and constant touring have helped the band carve our a sound all their own; part punk, part metal, and all Texas.

I keep coming back to their 1994 opus Rubberneck as one of the best full albums of the 90s. While “Possum Kingdom” put them on the radio and cemented their 90s status, the fellow Rubberneck song “Tyler” gets my vote as their best including the sing/scream-along last minute epic as some of the best in music. Even if the narrative is a bit creepy.
