So what is the actual name of this band? The Supertones, Supertones, OC Supertones! Anyways, they got the whole Christian industry into 3rd wave ska music. The other 2 Five Iron Frenzy & The Insyderz caught on right afterwards if I remember correctly. My acquaintance from high school was actually trying to bring them to Bloomington/Normal Illinois, but from what I gather they got stuck in a snow storm. Pretty sure this was circa 1995. Anyways, the bass lead is fun to play & not that difficult if you want to learn it.
Probably my favorite song of all time. Completely changed what I thought music could be and totally opened me up to a world of more aggressive music. Discovered it on WOW 1999 back when I was into collecting the WOW cds and I had never heard anything like it at first listen.
I love the bridge:
“God, look at me: I’m just a man
But You tell me I’m not just a man
So hard to understand
After all, I’m just a man”
