90s at 9 Sponge 'Wax Ecstatic'

A drug is not the solution.

Sponge released "Wax Ecstatic (To Sell Angelina) in 1996 as the debut single from their second studio album Wax Ecstatic. It performed pretty well for the band, reaching #15 on the Modern Rock Tracks and #11 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks charts. 
This song in my opinion is better than "Plowed," even though "Plowed" performed better on the charts and will forever be the song Sponge will be known for. "Plowed" sounds a little like Social Distortion, but "Wax Ecstatic (To Sell Angelina)" has more of an STP vibe...which explains why I prefer "Wax Ecstatic (To Sell Angelina)." 
The video is about a roller derby girl who is looking for a quick way to perform better in the sport. She gets her hands on pills that are said to be the answer, but at the end of the video it becomes apparent that they were not in fact the solution to her problem.

I'm a Central Wisconsin girl born and raised. I grew up in Port Edwards and participated in cheerleading, basketball, volleyball and softball as well as many clubs like National Honor Society, SADD, yearbook and forensics. I was a very busy high school student and still managed to get good enough grades to go to college at UW-Stevens Point where I was just as busy between working 3 jobs including executive staff positions at the campus alternative rock radio station and volunteering at the campus television station.

After graduation I thought I would take my BA in Mass Communications with emphasis in Broadcasting and Journalism and Minor in Political Science and become a big time reporter in some major city. But instead my internship with our news station here at Midwest Communications turned into a part-time job and opened the door to the morning show co-host position at WDEZ. After 9 1/4 years of fun in the mornings I was promoted to Assistant Brand Manager and moved to The Workday Getaway.

I couldn't deny my love for rock anymore! It was time dive head first into the genre I spent my formative years listening to day in and day out. When the opportunity arose for me to become the Brand Manager for Rock 94.7 and host the morning show I couldn't pass it up.

I'm so happy that I stayed in Central Wisconsin I couldn't imagine raising my three daughters anywhere else.
