Bad Name, Good Song, Unsure About The Band

Another band with a stupid name- Fountains Of Wayne, who had a hit in 2003 with that irritating Stacey’s Mom novelty record. But in 1996, at the height (or depth maybe) of Britpop I heard this single and loved it- chugging guitars, hugely catchy chorus, more hooks than an angler’s box, sunny day guitar pop. I think they call it Power Pop. Whatever it is, it’s impossible not to sing along.
