Nada Surf, 'Popular'
It’s Tuesday — music day. I have been on a mid-nineties post-grunge and alt rock kick again and stumbled across “Popular” by Nada Surf last week. (I don’t remember the chain of links I followed, but at some point I probably revisited “Lump.”)
The locker room shower scene at the end: Why? Is it there just to be daring and push the cable television envelope? Probably. I seem to remember a rash of pixilated areas on VH1 and MTV around that time.
