Today’s Throwback Video of the Day is “Cannonball” from [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Breeders[/lastfm]!!
It reminds us of when we used to yell “Cannonball!!” before jumping into the kiddie pool…
Originally a side project for [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pixies[/lastfm] bassist Kim Deal, The Breeders found critical and commercial success in 1993 with their second album, Last Splash. It sold over a million copies and landed at No. 33 on the Billboard 200 chart.
The lead single, “Cannonball,” was a Top 5 Modern Rock hit. The music video was directed by Spike Jonze and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sonic Youth[/lastfm]’s Kim Gordon, and VH1 placed it at No. 83 on their list of the 100 Greatest Songs of the ’90s.
