Oh man, the hours I wasted sat in front on MTV waiting for gems like this to periodically pop up. But am I sorry? No sir! No I am not! Man, I still love Throwing Muses. Thanks for the upload.

I just love how badass and intense Kristin looks when she performs. Them eyes, man… Them eyes.

Does anyone remember the episode of Golden Girls when they all went to see Throwing Muses at an underground night club? That was the best Golden Girls episode.

That little side to side motion as she plays is just adorable. I remember seeing this video when it came out and being kind of mesmerized by her. She's so damned cute.

Anyone who think that girls can’t rock or 80th music sucks should get down on their knees and repent, that’s what I’m doing it now.

Remembering I had the CD single of this song. Early nineties Alternative. Lovely little era of music. So many bands putting out some amazing, original music. It's crazy how after this and if you count Electronica later in the decade, there really hasn't been another musical genre/movement created since then. Maybe it speaks of the staleness of modern music.

Chick's with guitars who were actually proficient playing them. I miss 90's alternative music :>{

great song, great band, they don't make them like this anymore.

Two of the loveliest, classiest and smartest ladies rock music has ever had. And together with the other ultra-talented members of their band, a criminally underrated band.

Am I the only one that thinks that the gazing in the distance look, is very similar to what Liz Frazer of the Cocteau twins does ?
