Nirvana's Nevermind isn't the only major album celebrating a 20th anniversary this year: Two decades ago, the Spin Doctors' Pocket Full of Kryptonite was pumping out hits like "Two Princes" and "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" that frequently populated the upper reaches of MTV's Top 20 Video Countdown. (Yes, two decades ago, MTV had Top 20 Video Countdowns.) Everyone was singing "If you want to call me baby, just go ahead now" that summer -- that and R.E.M.'s "Losing My Religion."
The Spin Doctors have been largely inactive since 2006, only coming together for one-off gigs, but with the anniversary of Kryptonite in sight, the Doctors will reunite later this year to reissue their best album and tour the States, Spinner reports. The double-disc Kryptonite reissue arrives August 30th packed with the remastered original album, live material, and unreleased demos. Spin Doctors will announce the dates of their Kryptonite reunion trek next week. Between the Pocket Full deluxe edition and the re-release of Pearl Jam's Ten in 2009, all we need now is a 20th anniversary reissue of the Gin Blossoms' New Miserable Experience next year and our trifecta of guilty pleasure '90s albums will be complete.
Reminisce about Pocket Full of Kryptonite's best tracks:
"Little Miss Can't Be Wrong"
"Jimmy Olsen's Blues" (Side note: Remember when music videos used to include crowd shots of like moshing? Those were the days.)
"How Could You Want Him (When You Know You Could Have Me)"
