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).
