The Toadies - "Possum Kingdom"

I miss the way '90s alt rock sounds. The post-Pixies era felt so simple, so sunny in its dirty guitar riffs and barky vocals. Bringing up the lighter side of the grunge sound, the Fort Worth act The Toadies helped to pioneer the definitive markings of their decade. Their most famous single "Possum Kingdom" might be one of the happier-sounding songs about murder. Check out the only mildly creepy music video from this 1994 track below.
