STP, not the gas gas gas...

I'm sure that I am going to catch a lot of flack for this one, but oh well. Does anyone remember this song? I recall being a bit surprised by liking a song by the Stone Temple Pilots at the time, but going back now, holy crap. This is from 1996. Let me put this in perspective for you. Alanis Morrisette and Smashing Pumpkins are selling a shit ton of records. People still watch MTV and MTV still plays videos. Julian Casablancas is still in boarding school. So for no reason, Stone Temple Pilots climbs out of their faux-grunge radio rock sewer with this completely raw and in my opinion amazing song. And the video! What T fuck!? You cant really tell on the youtube but its shot in this shitty, flourecent lit 80's tape stock with all this deliberately cheesy and half-assed editing. NINETEEN NINETY SIX!
Then, they promptly go back to being shit
