EDITORS’ NOTES

This “Greatest Hits” collection is a solid blast of powerful, undeniably catchy hard rock. STP threw up monster riffs that thrilled arena rock patrons and aspiring guitarists alike. The hard rock powerchord rumble of “Sex Type Thing,” the downtrodden vibe of “Creep,” the wide-open cruising feel of “Interstate Love Song” and the shifting big rock dynamics of “Big Empty” stand on their own. The band explored a variety of styles, culminating in the glam-rock frenzy of “Big Bang Baby.”

How come so few people have heard of this band?

Almost all rock fans i know have never heard of this band. (new rock fans, old rock fans, and even big fans of music from the 90s who say they know all there is to know about the bands) How can anyone not have heard a band that has sold 40 millions records. I mean of course i know a lot of people at the age of like 23-35 who have heard of them, but very few my age 14-17 that have heard of them. If you do not have an album of STP and wish to get one this is a good place to start, but as you buy all the albums you'll understand how unique this band is with each record. True rock n roll legends.

One of the best alternative bands ever

STP is up there with Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, etc. as one of the best alternative bands.

Vasoline- Great opening song. Second best song on the album.
Down- STP's heaviest song. Insanely cool.
Wicked Garden- Sure it's more of a AIC song, but it still is catchy and was a radio hit.
Big Empty- First STP song I ever heard. Good driving song.
Plush- STP's most famous song. I personally feel like the song is dragged on a bit, when it stops and then comes back after 5 seconds, but nonetheless, it is still a great song. Grunge classic.
Big Bang Baby- This is when STP went sort of "poppy" and "glam". Still great song.
Creep- Coolest song here. I love the chorus. "I'm half the man I used to be..."
Lady Picture Show- Pretty good. Not nearly as good as the other songs, but still is a noteworthy song.
Trippin' on a Hole in a Paper Heart- My favorite STP song. Unbelievably cool.
Interstate Love Song- Like the review says, a great highway song. Very catchy.
All in the Suit That You Wear- Great song that sounds as good as the earlier stuff
Sex Type Thing- Great riff. A very good grunge song.
Days of the Week- Ehh...a hit and miss affair
Sour Girl- Great pop tune, sounds like nothing else STP plays

One more thing- Where is "Dead and Bloated"?
