Why 1997 Will Eternally Rule as an Amazing Year in Music

It's hard to believe that we were bopping our heads 20 years ago to songs like "I'll Be Missing You," "The Freshmen," and "Coco Jamboo," to name a few (shout out if you remember the last one well, like I do). It was a magical year for the music industry, in that 1997 was still a time where every single genre was invited to the table and brought back for seconds and thirds. Make sure you're hungry, because we're about to serve you some delicious throwback jams that will leave you full - and jonesing for that old CD player you left at your parents' house years ago. In the mid-'90s, we saw a huge decline in what is considered "pop" music as the grunge and hip-hop scene made its way to the top of the charts and left the pop princes and princesses in the dust.

Rockers Hold Their Noses to Perform Outside Gop Convention in Cleveland
They were in Cleveland - but defiantly not #RNCinCLE. When it comes to booking the big showbiz entertainment Donald Trump promised for jazzing up his Republican National Convention, Third Eye Blind and Rick Springfield want to be very clear that they are not it.

Film Review: ‘The Cult of Jt LeRoy’

Film Review: ‘The Cult of Jt LeRoy’
A literary hoax that picked up extraordinary steam before imploding is charted in “The Cult of Jt LeRoy.” Having begun filming the subject in 2002, and with a background in social work uniquely congruent with “his” background claims, Marjorie Sturm draws on a rich array of material to assemble a first documentary feature that’s fascinating on numerous levels. The topic’s residual infamy (plus the onscreen presence of many duped celebrities) should make this a viable specialty item as it expands beyond its home-turf theatrical launch March 13 at San Francisco’s Roxie Theater.

San Francisco was where Jt (aka Jeremiah “Terminator”) LeRoy claimed to have been abandoned by his “truckstop prostitute” mother after a cross-country road trip. After years purportedly on the street, involved in drugs and prostitution, he was encouraged at age 15 by a therapist to write “as a form of therapy.” As early as 1994, he began soliciting long-distance

The lawsuit comes from bass player Matthew Murphy Karges and drummer Charles Stanton Frazier, who are accusing McGrath of a “series of self-serving and vindictive actions.” According to the 29-page complaint, “McGrath spent the last year engaging in a bitter campaign to destroy the personal and professional reputations of Frazier and Karges,” but only after he licensed the Sugar Ray name to a “newly ...

Watch: Frontier Ruckus Covers Third Eye Blind Classic

Watch: Frontier Ruckus Covers Third Eye Blind Classic
Frontier Ruckus has always had a thing for looking backwards in time, and especially for mining the nostalgia of their Metro Detroit childhoods.

This Michigan folk-influenced band was formed by a couple of Brother Rice High School alums that first made their name playing to college crowds in East Lansing, Grand Rapids and Ann Arbor.

Places, people and memories curated from a lifetime spent in Michigan have proved to be a strong foundation for the songwriting of lead singer Matthew Milia. The folky foursome even made a snapshot of Pontiac's now-abandoned Summit Place Mall (a total '90s mallrat destination) the cover for their second album, "Deadmalls and Nightfalls."

Now supporting their new third album, "Eternity of Dimming," Frontier Ruckus have turned all their musical tools -- banjo, singing saw and sweet melodies -- to one of the catchiest '90s anthems of all, Third Eye Blind's "Semi-Charmed Life.

Jackson Browne Folks Up Occupy Wall Street
Jackson Browne rallied the remaining troops at Occupy Wall Street on Thursday afternoon, playing an acoustic set to the dwindling number of protesters at New York's Zuccotti Park. Only a few dozen rabble-rousers were in the crowd, which also consisted of police officers and tourists. The scene was muted, according to reports, with police having evicted protesters at the Zuccotti Park encampment on Nov. 15.

Stars Stand With Occupy Wall Street After AMAs

Stars Stand With Occupy Wall Street After AMAs
Music, at its best, has given voice to protesters and provided the soundtrack for change. On Sunday night, some of the biggest names in the industry will unite to show solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement following the national broadcast of the American Music Awards.

Occupy Los Angeles announced on Sunday that an all-star lineup of musicians and activists will participate in a live discussion at the Villa Lounge in West Hollywood to discuss the entertainment industry's relationship with the national Occupy movement.

Already, music has intertwined itself with the growing movement. Stars such as Russell Simmons and Tom Morello have made their presence felt in a big way at New York's Zuccotti Park, the birth place of the Occupy Wall Street protests, and many more have spoken out in support of the self-styled 99% and their push for economic justice.

Third Eye Blind pen Occupy Wall Street song

  • Pop2it
Every big cultural movement needs a theme song, and '90s alt-rockers Third Eye Blind have taken it upon themselves to supply the disgruntled 99 percent with a tune inspired by Occupy Wall Street. The track, entitled "If There Ever Was a Time," was written by frontman Stephan Jenkins in support of the movement. 

"I hope it achieves its goals of starting new politics that are counter to the trend towards oligarchy that's been increasingly foisted on us these last few years," Jenkins says in a press release on the band's website. 

"I think college students are going to come to terms with the unfairness of student loans, the hallowing out of jobs from finance based capitalism, and the depletion of public wealth," he continues. "When you take money out of politics, which is what Occupy Wall Street is about for me, you reverse these trends. This song is meant to encourage their participation.

Revolutionaries, unite: Third Eye Blind has released a song for Ows

At the height of the Vietnam War protests, Bob Dylan wrote: "So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late." As Occupy Wall Street celebrated its two-month anniversary yesterday, alt-rock group Third Eye Blind decided it was time for a new rebel anthem. Revolutionaries, rejoice: everyone's favorite band from the American Pie soundtrack has recorded a song for Ows. Can one song really change the world? 3Eb Frontman Stephan Jenkins seems to think so.

First Listen: San Francisco's Most Famous Rockers Pen Occupy Wall Street Anthem

Never one to step back from the ledge separating music and politics, Third Eye Blind frontman Stephan Jenkins has penned an ode to the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Entitled "If There Ever Was A Time," the San Francisco alt-rock mainstay's newly released protest song kicks off with a bang--an audio clip taken from the gristly aftermath of a police-lobbed tear gas canister fracturing the skull of Iraq War veteran Scott Olsen at an infamous Occupy Oakland protest.

From there, the U.C. Berkeley valedictorian (really) says Zuccotti Park is everywhere and calls on the youth of America to take to the streets--all done in Third Eye Blind's trademark glossy post-grunge style.

The track can be streamed or downloaded on the band's Facebook page.

Third Eye Blind's Stephan Jenkins Talks 'Jumper' Collaboration With All Time Low

By Joel Hanek

It's no secret that All Time Low's Alex Gaskarth has fallen deep into a summer bromance with fellow tour mate Third Eye Blind frontman Stephan Jenkins on this year's Bamboozle Roadshow. The tour itself ended this past weekend, but thanks to the Internets, various videos of the two performing 3Eb's seminal '90s radio anthem "Jumper" have surfaced. This past weekend, the two talked to MTV News about how the collaboration was conceived on the Roadshow.

"Everybody's sort of been jumping on stage for other bands' sets and that's kind of one of the things that have made this tour such a good experience for the bands," Gaskarth explained of the tour's atmosphere. "As I said, I'm a fan of your band," Gaskarth told Jenkins, who has cited Third Eye Blind as one of his major influences, "and I got to come out and sing a song with you guys.

The eclectic traveling carnival that is the Bamboozle Roadshow came to an end over the weekend in Boston, but the "bro"-bonds that were formed on tour will go on. MTV News followed the action all week, catching up with all of the acts, from pop-punkers Boys Like Girls and Good Charlotte to electro-funksters Lmfao and 3Oh!3.

While the acts were diverse, one common theme among the musicians was their near-unanimous tendency to geek out over fellow headliners Third Eye Blind, with many calling the band one of the biggest influences on the current generation of rock groups.

All Time Low are having a pretty good summer. The boys from Baltimore have been spending the last month on the Bamboozle Roadshow, where they've met some of their idols, gotten love from their legions of fans and, as the band puts it, done a lot of "bro-in' down."

Atl took a break from the sweltering heat at the Philadelphia stop of the Roadshow last Sunday to talk to MTV News about the experience of traveling cross-country with Boys Like Girls, Lmfao, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan and Third Eye Blind (among many others). "It's been great, so much fun," lead singer Alex Gaskarth gushed. "All the bands have been hanging out, bro-in' down, as they say."
