Helmet with Toadies
It's still kind of weird to think of '90s bands as nostalgia acts. However, Toadies and Helmet really are just that: Groups that bring you back to another time. A time when the music they created was still relevant and playing in the background of what are now memories of important moments. Those inadvertent soundtracks really do play a significant role in shaping our memories, especially when it comes to inescapable mega-hits, like Toadies "Possum Kingdom," which were played from just about every speaker on the planet for a while.
Droves of fans came out to reconnect with two bands that shared a special time together in the alt rock dorm room of the 1990s. Both followed rather similar paths, paying their musical dues, slaving for the Interscope label, subsequently breaking up, and having now reformed to tour and produce new music.
