Rizzo Music continues with the countdown of the Top 100 Songs of the 1990s, with “Found Out About You” by Gin Blossoms. A radio friendly hit with mass appeal, “Found Out About You” was Gin Blossoms fourth single off of New Miserable Experience. Although this was the only single to hit #1 on the Modern Rock Charts, they released 5 singles off of their sophomore album – all of which cracked the Top 40 on the Mainstream Rock Chart. “Found Out About You”, which was released in 1994, may not be their most popular or famous song to date but was one of those songs that defined their sound as a band.

Gin Blossoms is a jangle pop alternative rock band that formed in the late 80s, but didn’t hit it big until 1993 when they released, “Hey Jealousy”. They not only had five successful singles off of New Miserable Experience, but they also went on to release 3 more singles that charted on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, two of which broke into the top 10. The band split up in 1997 but started to regroup after 2002. They released their latest album, Major Lodge Victory in 2006 and have been touring ever since. Nearly ten years after Congratulations I’m Sorry, “Major Lodge Victory” put the band from Tempe, Arizona, made it back onto the Billboard 200 Chart, topping out at 159.

The music video for “Found Out About You” is pretty much just classic ’90s. They make good use of their strobe light as they show shots of the band playing the song as well as what appears to be a hotel. The strobe light is a perfect fit for this foot-tapping ’90s rock classic but at the same time it probably won’t invoke you to go watch it again. Great song, pretty good video. Check it out!
