This band gets little to no credit on this board. I see threads on a daily basis discussing bands like Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Nirvana and the Red Hot Chili Peppers but in my opinion Jane's Addiction's two studio albums Nothing's Shocking and Ritual de lo Habitual have more energy and more creativity than anything any of those bands ever created. Perry Ferrell's lyrics are more encompassing than even our beloved Eddie Vedder's. Just listen to Three Days, Jane Says, Summertime Rolls or Ocean Size. The man paints a very vivid picture with words. Eric Avery's basslines carry Perry's vocals very well (see Ted, Just Admit it..) and Dave Navarro can fucking shred guitar solos (see Ocean Size). Jane's Addiction created the Alternative scene in LA in the late 80s that paved the way for the rise of Alternative music. Then after they created the scene they created the festival (Lolla) to represent the scene. Let's hear some love for a band that is among the most unique and original in music history.
“Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got about a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies — ‘God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.’” - Kurt Vonnegut
