378. The Lemonheads

Some bands seem so poised for a breakout that you find yourself counting the days until that happens. For a couple of years, musical pundits were predicting massive things for Evan Dando and his band the Lemonheads. They pointed to their catchy songs and Dando’s good looks and with the music industry looking for the next big Alternative thing, they graced music magazine covers and critics best of lists. Their rise to the top never happened, and though they recorded acclaimed music, it never reached the mass audience that was predicted for them. With their buzz long since gone, it is doubtful that the Hall may call for them in 2011 or anytime there after.         The Bullet Points:   Eligible In: 2011   Country of Origin: U.S.A.
