“Annie’s Gone” – Redd Kross


Because Redd Kross always seemed to be riding a kitschy 1970s schtick from early on and played that up in their videos, I think they were always unfairly dismissed. Their 1990 Atlantic-label album “Third Eye” is a pop masterpiece and would easily be on my Top 100 desert island albums list. “Annie’s Gone” should have been a monster hit, and while it got some play on college radio, it didn’t go much further from that. A severely underrated band and album.
