One louder, baby!

Candlebox is celebrating its 25th anniversary and the multi-platinum rock band has more than stood the test of time.

The group’s 1991 self-titled album sold four million copies and was certified four times platinum. Their follow-up, Lucy, earned platinum certification and cemented their place in the ’90s music scene.

They’re best-known for their hits like “Change,” “You,” “Far Behind” and “Simple Lessons.”

Candlebox
Candlebox’s name was inspired by a line in a Midnight Oil song.

Here’s a little “Change” from Candlebox.

 

Cracker has been described as a lot of things over the years: Alt-rock, Americana, insurgent-country, and more.

More than anything, though, Cracker are survivors.

The group’s co-founders, David Lowery and Johnny Hickman, have been at it for a quarter century, amassing 10 studio albums, multiple gold records, thousands of live performances and hit songs still in current radio rotation around the globe.

Cracker
Cracker’s gold-selling album, Kerosene Hat, is one for the ages.

Cracker’s tenth and most recent studio effort, Berkeley To Bakersfield, tops off an incredible run of success.

Take a moment to listen to “Low” from Cracker.
