1065 The End’s Big Fat Birthday Bash
- CAKE’s sound: alt-rock that’s frosting-thick with humor and angular guitars, all made instantly recognizable thanks to John McCrea’s deadpan vocals
- They’re going: “The Distance,” their breakout 1996 hit that went on to become an unlikely sports anthem
- Where they are: “Never There,”another massive hit, characterized by an unconventional use of mariachi trumpet
- Other Cake tracks likely to get stuck in one’s head: “Short Skirt/Long Jacket,” “Sheep Go to Heaven,” and their one-of-a-kind take on Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive”
- Their earth-friendliest album: 2011’s Showroom of Compassion, which, according to AllMusic.com, was recorded in a studio powered exclusively by solar energy
- New Politics’s sound: a little bit pop, a little bit punk, and highly danceable, all by way of their native Copenhagen
- Big Data’s first big hit: the electro-pop gem “Dangerous,” which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart before their debut album was even released
- Flagship’s superpower: creating rock tracks that are as intricate as they are otherworldly, thanks to the efforts of Charlotte-based members Drake Margolnick and Michael Finster
