For some strange and uncanny reason I really enjoy the band Everclear. The video is “Father of Mine” off their So Much For the Afterglow album. I basically wore out their CD when I got it initially because a girl I liked really like them. So I bought it and listened to it so we’d have something to talk about. But the more I listened the more I liked them.
I think the singer Art Alexakis is a mastermind and genius, and the drummer kind of looks like Chandler from Friends. So that just added to their coolness. But this song is striking, hard hitting and leaves you feeling for all the kids in this situation.
(If you watch the video, beware of the “party scene” towards the end of the song.)
