In 1992, Blind Melon released their self-titled debut album, and the first two singles were top ten hits on the Mainstream Rock charts. The first single, Tones of Home was released in 1992, and it peaked at number ten on the Mainstream Rock charts and number 20 on the Alt Rock charts.
They followed Tones of Home up with their second single No Rain, which became one of the biggest hits of the ’90s. The music video for No Rain featuring the little bumblebee girl is one of the most recognizable music videos of all time.
Unfortunately, they only scored one more top ten hit on the Alt Rock charts with their 1995 single Galaxie, which peaked at number eight on the Alt Rock charts. Sadly, lead singer Shannon Hoon died of a heart attack caused by a cocaine overdose on the band’s tour bus on October 21, 1995 in downtown New Orleans.
Enjoy this look back at Blind Melon’s music videos for not only No Rain, but also for their first single Tones of Home, and their last hit, Galaxie from 1995.
