When you think of Post-Grunge, Alterna-Pop one hit wonders many bands should come to mind. Among them should be Nada Surf. In the mid 1990s Nada
Surf came out of the blue with their Weezer influenced mega hit Popular. It was different then most of what was on the radio at the time, but its strange
spoken lyrics (Make sure to keep your hair spotless and clean/Wash it at least once every two weeks) about how to break up with someone and catchy
choruses won the band many fans. But before releasing their second album, the band was dropped from their label for lack of a potential hit. This didn't stop
the boys of Nada Surf who began releasing records on indie giant Barsuk, some of which even achieved more success than their major label debut).
