Someone suggested I cover this song on my FB page! And like most songs I cover, this song totally reminds me of being a teenager. I am the eternal child. And yet 30. Join me in this magical journey back in time. Yay for 90’s kids. And everyone else… 🙂
Released: September 29, 1992
Stone Temple Pilots is an American rock band from San Diego, California, that originally consisted of Scott Weiland (lead vocals), brothers Dean (guitar) and Robert DeLeo (bass, backing vocals), and Eric Kretz (drums). From the band’s formation in 1989, its line-up remained unchanged until the firing of Weiland in 2013, who was replaced by Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington. In 2015, Bennington left the band to focus solely on Linkin Park.
While initially rising to fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990s, further releases from the band expressed a variety of influences, including psychedelic rock, bossa nova and classic rock. The band’s evolution throughout the 1990s and early 2000s involved several tumultuous periods of commercial highs and lows, brought about in part by Weiland’s well-publicized struggles with drug addiction.
The band originally went by STP, but got into some legal trouble from using the name (STP is a brand of engine treatment). They came up with three words to use instead, which at first were Shirley Temple’s P–sy. They eventually changed it to Stone Temple Pilots.
