Loved the band since I was like 12, sadly Steele died in 2010 so I never got to see them live. My favorite album is Life is Killing Me and then October Rust. Overall I love every song they produced, such a shame they aren't still around but no one could replace Pete.
Yep, huge fan of this band. I listened to them constantly through middle and high school. I got to see them live in 2009 just months before Steele died. He looked really rough, had put on quite a bit of weight, walked out on stage with a cane, and he was reading some of the lyrics off a music stand. He sounded great though.
Only reason I remember the name at first was because the video for Black No. 1. was featured on an episode of "Beavis & Butthead". Butthead mocked the lead singer with his....bass voice.
I mentioned the name of the band to a friend of mine when I was going to University. He immediately mentioned Black No. 1.
I have a compilation called "Hard", which features bands like Sevendust, Sepultura, Fear Factory and the like. It also features "My Girlfriend's Girlfriend", which is my favourite song by Type O Negative.
I also have the soundtrack to "I Know What You Did Last Summer". I had a look at it, and saw they did a song called "Summer Breeze".
I thought....nah. It CAN'T be a cover of the song by Seals & Crofts.
