I know it's not fair to make you choose but if you had to choose which one would you choose. I know you don't have to but if you had to which one, is what I'm asking. Do you understand the question, it isn't a hard question even though the answer is hard, very very hard.

“hooch” is vastly superior, the other songs are nowhere close

it could easily be a sugar ray song !

budo jeru, Thursday, 1 August 2019 05:31 (three weeks ago) link

“what it’s like” would have been a better option. even though it’s also better it’s in the same wheelhouse

“hooch” more in that everclear / third eye blind axis, at least to my ears

I was thinking about "Hooch" the other day! I haven't heard it since it came out, or met anyone else who remembers it; it's never been clear to me whether it was an actual hit, or just something my local top 40 station decided to push hard for a few months.

Interestingly (or not), those few months overlapped my middle school-era habit of playing Final Fantasy Tactics for six hours a day with the radio on in the background. To this day, the image that comes to my mind when I hear the chorus is Delita getting pecked by a chocobo.

You really should listen to the song 'Hooch' by Everything. Everyone should experience the wholesale collapse of all their beliefs and values at least once, it builds character.

i'm sorry but you should NOT simply listen to the song 'Hooch' by Everything. that is DANGEROUS advice from the above poster OLD LUNCH. You should first buy a dress shirt with a gigantic collar and a baggy suit. put them on. now unbutton that shirt a few buttons and pull the gigantic collar over the lapel of your suit jacket. people are going to want to see that collar. drive out to a farmhouse with a shady porch. hold a saxophone. picture tens of fans out there standing in the grass to see you play that saxophone. listen to the song 'Hooch' by Everything.

There were a lot of not-great songs on the radio at that time, which I know because we always had the radio on at my place of work, but 'Hooch' really went that extra mile to stand out in the crowd. I've never donated marrow but I imagine the sensation isn't terribly dissimilar to hearing 'Hooch'.

Okay, having now done some cursory research on the band Everything, I find that I was correct in my assumption that they are (ARE, not was) a group of college buddies. However, I was incorrect in my assumption that this song could only have been written by dudes sittin' around the quad, killin' time between devil stick sessions, because 'Hooch' is from their fourth album, released nearly a decade after the band's formation.

It's sick and sad and weird but I really need to hear their early work now.

I forget what college scene Everything came from, but I had a friend who attended that college, and made me a mixtape which included a few tracks from one of their first release.
One was called "SLWB" which stood for... well, I'll just let you listen to it, because it's on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GclzttprPU

jakey mo collier (voodoo chili), Sunday, 4 August 2019 14:16 (two weeks ago) link

If I’m not mistaken they were from Virginia. I could be wrong but I think this because a friend of mine from college was hometown friends with them and was their tour manager for a while after graduation. During this time I was at NYU and they opened for Hootie so he got us in for free. My dad’s best friends are really close with DR and all the BF because they went to college with them so after the show I would up hanging out a bit with some of the guys I knew and DR and I remember my very very stoned friends standing there looking at me like Dude, is she talking to Hootie? I hate all these songs but that was one of the weirdest nights of my life so everything have a special place in my heart.

Everything are from VA. my station played "Hooch" a LOT and before I even knew they were local, I suspected they were, given the song was one of those bland, low-effort songs that only gets play cuz the band has local fans. This is the first time I realized the song was bigger than our area, which is baffling. I don't think I've heard it since the last century

Vinnie, Wednesday, 14 August 2019 03:34 (one week ago) link

I have no recollection of ever hearing “hooch” in my life. The Sugar Ray comparison is otm. I don’t hate it but it’s sort of unremarkable. LFO also kind of reminds me of Sugar Ray. I feel like ‘crazy town’ is the odd one in here.

Come to think of it I don’t hate either of these three songs but I also have no desire to ever listen to them again.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Wednesday, 14 August 2019 04:17 (one week ago) link

All three songs are dumb. "Hooch" is the dumbest.

"Summer Girls" is overrated, but it's good and dumb.

"Butterfly" wins my vote because I will never dislike the Flea sample.

billstevejim, Wednesday, 14 August 2019 05:42 (one week ago) link

Hooch is dumb masquerading as merely mediocre. A true lowering of the bar.

Summer girls is dumb, but knows it's dumb, which is the next best thing to being stupid on purpose.

The Pretty Little Ditty sample in Butterfly always pisses me off, because that's probably the best RHCP song (both on its own as an objectively pretty little ditty, and by virtue of the Keidis Omission). Plus every time I hear it I can't help but imagine the thousands of seductions that have been set to this tune. It doesn't matter that it is totally bad; "Sexy, sexy pretty little thing/fierce nipple pierce/you got me sprung with your tongue ring" is enough to turn up the heat for some. At the meat market. At the frat party. On the way home from seeing American Pie in the back of a 1996 Chevy Cavalier. I want people to enjoy their sexuality. I want people to listen to stupid popular songs. But this combination just makes me squirm.

All this talk about "Butterfly" piqued my curiosity enough to finally listen to the song, and...
of right, I've heard this a million times, but for some reason I always assumed this was Limp Bizkit.

Now I guess I have to go listen to LFO for completeness...
and, wow, those lyrics are somethin else. This is the best of the batch by a country mile. It's basically a Kidz Bop re-write of LL Cool J's "I Need Love", with a whole slew of non-sequiters to pad out the rhyme scheme. Respect.
