Fountains of Wayne and Soul Asylum

  • Fountains of Wayne's songwriting team: Adam Schlesinger and Chris Collingwood
  • Where they got their name: a lawn ornament store in Wayne, NJ
  • Is it still open?: no, but you can see it in an episode of The Sopranos
  • Song you've probably heard: "Stacy's Mom," which has got it goin' on
  • Song you should hear: "Hey Julie," a single that, like Stacy, was overshadowed by the mom
  • Other deep cuts praised for their power-pop catchiness and detailed storytelling: "Leave The Biker," "Red Dragon Tattoo," "Strapped For Cash," "Richie And Ruben"
  • Movie songs written by Schlesinger that you didn't know were written by Schlesinger: "Pretend To Be Nice" from Josie And The Pussycats, the Grammy-nominated title track from That Thing You Do!
  • Soul Asylum's sound: the working-class rock of the Twin Cities
  • First giant hit: "Runaway Train" from 1992's triple-platinum Grave Digger's Union, which won the band a Grammy and a gold-plated railroad spike
  • Latest release: No Fun Intended, a 2013 EP which features covers of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart" and MC5's "Shakin' Street"
  • Where you've heard Evan Dando: Lemonheads tunes such as "Into Your Arms" and a mammoth cover of "Mrs. Robinson"
  • Other song you should hear: "Alison's Starting to Happen," a power-chorded portrait of the earliest moments of love
