28 December 2012 - Silverchair - Anthem for the Year 2000

Silverchair were - are? They haven't made their breakup clear - an Australian band of kids - they formed in 1992, when they were 12 - that sound a lot like Pearl Jam.  That doesn't mean they don't have some fun songs.

This song isn't fun.  It's angry and energetic and was woefully under-appreciated in 1999, when it was released.  It's a heavy, anthemic song that should have garnered more attention for the band.  Instead, it was a middling hit on the mainstream charts in the US, and a minor hit elsewhere.  But I didn't forget either the song or the adventurous video!
