Featured in Kevin Smith movies “Chasing Amy” and “Mallrats,” as well as “Guitar Hero,” the sounds of Detroit-based Sponge have been entertaining rock music fans for at least a couple of generations.
“Sponge has proven to be one of the Motor City’s heaviest hitters after gaining international notoriety with their debut album ‘Rotting Piñata,’” according to the band’s website: spongetheband.com. “Emerging from Detroit with hits like ‘Plowed’ and ‘Molly (16 Candles),’ Sponge received massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and were in heavy rotation on MTV. Both ‘Plowed’ and ‘Molly’ hit no. 5 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Charts, catapulting ‘Rotting Piñata’ to gold and, ultimately, platinum status.
“‘Plowed’ continues to be the band’s signature rock track, having been spotlighted on ‘Guitar Hero’s Warriors of Rock – 90’s Rock Track Pack’ — and on the ‘Paper Jamz Guitar Series 2,’ in addition to the soundtrack for the Gerard Butler surf movie ‘Chasing Mavericks,’” according to the band’s bio.
