#45 – Candlebox – “Far Behind” – (1993)

This early post-grunge (that’s really breaking it down, isn’t it?) song was, statistically, Candlebox’s biggest hit, charting in the top 20 on the Hot 100. As was our #48 song – er, make that band (Temple of the Dog), “Far Behind” is also a tribute song to Andrew Wood. Candlebox was formed in Seattle in 1991 during the height of grunge so it’s no surprise that they were successful. I think anyone in Seattle could have formed a band between 1989 and 1992 and they would have found success – not to take away from those who did. The self-titled Candlebox album was their largest, going Platinum 4x.
