10,000 Maniacs
10,000 Maniacs is one of rock's most critically acclaimed bands. The quintet's pop-conscious, literate and lush aesthetic helped reshape FM radio. Along with bands like R.E.M., U2, The Smiths, and The Police, 10,000 Maniacs is considered one of the primary architects of the college rock sound. The Jamestown, New York-born group first gained widespread recognition with 1987's In My Tribe which charted at an impressive feat for a pioneering alternative group and would go on to sell over 2 million copies. The record featured the hit singles "Hey Jack Kerouac," "Like The Weather," "Don't Talk," and "What's The Matter Here?" Rolling Stone Magazine voted the album in the Top 100 releases of the decade. The band would sell 3 million copies in 1992 with the landmark Our Time In Eden, bolstered by alt-rock radio mainstays like "These Are Days" and "Candy Everybody Wants." MTV's Unplugged, featuring a remake of the classic, "Because the Night," released in 1993, sold over 4 million copies.
