Throwback Thursday: Ben Folds Five


The 90's were a weird time. All sorts of different things were happening. Through all of that mess, there was one band that really seemed to stick out to me. That band was Chapel Hill, NC trio Ben Folds Five. Maybe Ben is right and they played "punk rock for sissies." Whatever it was, they really spoke to me.

I must credit another Chapel Hill band for reminding me how much I love these guys. Can Joann's mutiny last week included Song For The Dumped. When I was putting that together, I dusted off the old BFF discs and was like "damn, they are definitely next week's throwback." So, thanks Joel.
