Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 312/500!
Formed in Los Angeles in the mid-80s, Jane's Addiction set a standard for
driving, passionate and sonically crushing alternative rock before the term was
even coined. They were flamboyant and provocative, with an equal interest in
visual art, fashion, and 70s era guitar riffs. Singer Perry Farrell, guitarist
Dave Navarro, bassist Eric Avery, and percussionist Stephen Perkins were already
commanders of a giant cult following by the time their first major-label
release, Nothing's Shocking, came out in 1988.
"They thought Led Zeppelin were a funk band, and when they learned this was not true, they carried on anyway. Initially released wrapped in ribbed rubber, Jane's major-label debut rewrites pre-Nirvana rock history, reconciling punk and metal with shredding riffs on oceanic songs." - www.rollingstone.com
