About the Artist
'Rubberneck' is a post-grunge favorite and the successful debut of the Toadies, released in 1994. It contains the hit single 'Possum Kingdom' which attracted mainstream attention toward this no-holds-barred alternative rock band from Texas. The album went platinum in the US in 1996. 'Rubberneck' fits into an era when Faith No More, Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots were having streaks of hit records. The album was mixed by Andy Wallace who also took care of mixing Nirvana's 'Nevermind'. Catchy riffs, loping bass lines and hard-hitting drum grooves make for an excellent record. --This text refers to the Vinyl edition.

At times they sing about the same topics as usual--screwed up relationships, depression, etc--but with more passion and energy than the typical band. But much of the album is devoted to more unusual material: vampirism, evolution, heresy.
No matter what the lyrics are about, the music and vocals are so awesome you won't care what they're singing about. The lead singer has a unique, emotive voice which is prominent throughout most of the songs. They also have a fantastic song on the Crow: City Of Angels Soundtrack. The song is "Paper Dress" and it is incredibly powerful.
Overall, this is an incredible album that fans of groups like Nirvana (aggressive post-punk rock) and Live (with its catchy hooks and emotional vocals) must check out.
On to my point: "Possum Kingdom" is not about vampires, despite what goth fanboys want to believe. (...)
"The kids have been coming up and telling us that the song fits with all this Vampire stuff, but we didn't even get that. We actually have gotten these vampire-looking people at the shows. I think that we were oblivious to vampire references. Actually, it's just a ghost story. "Possum Kingdom" is a lake by our houses in Texas. You know, in Texas you hang out with your family and tell these ghost stories that are kinda, almost true. People believe those folk tales, and that was one of them. Or, it was based on one and we just took it somewhere else."
I think by "ghost story" she's referring to one of those "this guy raped and killed a bunch of girls here" stories told around a campfire.
Anyway, buy this album. I've had to buy three, since I keep lending it out and not getting it back....
