“Just Because” by Jane’s Addiction was released about the time I was in 8th grade and had a pretty big impact on some of the music I now currently listen to. To me, it was a good come back album from the band and gave me the motivation to check out more of their music. I hadn’t listened to rest of the music this band created over the years, nor was I very familiar with other works from Perry Ferrell until I heard this song.
“Just Because” is the first album released from the album, Strays, and was one of their most successful singles.
Their new album, The Great Escape Artist, was released two days ago and is already a very promising listen. It’s great to see a good rock band come out with new music.
Now I’m hoping like hell I get to see them at Lollapalooza in 2012.
