So, long time readers know that I work at a music store. And at the store, whichever manager is running the shift is allowed to play whatever music he wants to over the store loudspeakers (as long as the music is store appropriate so most hip-hop is out of bounds). When I still worked in Morgantown, one of my managers would play a lot of 90s alt rock which, as you should know, is always a good thing. And one of the songs that played quite a bit was 90s alt rock classic that I had more or less forgotten even existed. The song was “The Impression That I Get” by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. It probably doesn’t help that I had thought the song’s title was just “Knock on Wood” for the longest time so much like “Baba O’Riley” by the Who, it’s chorus has led a lot of people to think it has a different name than it really does. Anyways, I never really got into the whole 90s ska explosion when it was happening, but about 15 years later, I can say that it was a cool time. It’s a shame that No Doubt’s last record wasn’t as good as their older stuff.
