Local H – Bound for the Floor / 1996

What a great track. The simple lyrics and crunching guitars just never get old, and I’ll always remember where I learned the word “copacetic.” Local H has released 4 more studio albums since 1996’s As Good As Dead, a solid album with other standouts like “Hi-Fiving MF,” “Eddie Vedder,” and the propulsive head-banger “Back in the Day.” Unlike a lot of other 90s flash-in-the-pan bands they are surprisingly relevant, even being named 2008’s Chicago Tribune Band Of The Year. I haven’t heard much of their stuff since then but the track up on their MySpace are good, especially the anti California-song “California Songs.”
