Weekdays on the local alternative rock station, they do flannel flashback lunch. Basically, all 90s songs. Today, Hum’s “Stars” came on and I freaked, because it is mostly Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam and stuff like that. They NEVER play this hidden gem. I love the way this song is composed. Light guitar no distortion opens, drums kick in, and then rocking heavy guitar very similar to Smashing Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream. Bands like Hum, Sivlerchair, Sponge and The Toadies were just as prevalent to the grunge movement, but get tossed in the back seat.
This track was released in 1995, and was off the band’s third album You’d Prefer an Astronaut. Enjoy!
